30 CARS IN 30 DAYS: '34 Ford Sedan
Classic Ford owner is loyal to his former employer
By Dave Chapman
RIVERVIEW There are many early Fords from the 1920s and 30s where the owners have taken the easy way out and replaced the stock engine with a small-block Chevrolet.
Steve Suyak said would never think of doing anything like that.
I worked for Ford and find that they are very dependable cars, he said. I would never drive a Ford powered by anything else than a Ford.
Suyak found his two-door 1934 Ford Sedan 12 years ago.
When I saw the car, it was love at first sight, he said. I was like a kid in a candy store.
As you would expect from talking with Suyak, his car is powered by a 302-cubic inch Ford engine. Suyak said it puts out around 375 horsepower. However, when you hear it run, one might think his estimate might be just a tad on the low side.
Suyak drives his car to many of the local car shows and cruises. He enjoys the looks the car gets. He said the car drives so well it almost drives itself.
To make the driving more enjoyable for Suyak, the car has a tilt wheel and air conditioning to keep him and his wife cool on hot days.
