I owned the '58 chevy from 1960 thru 1963 it was originally a powerglide but I put a three speed trans in it and a floor shift and it really was a great car. I later painted it a metallic dark blue. It was a beauty. The cars of our days were truly fine." Ron Brisbay (JHS '61)

We are happy to present some cool school days cars and current classic cars all owned by boys that went to Hartman or Jackson and then Austin HS with many of our Jones Hot Rodders. These guys and some of our Jones car nuts help form the great "Modifiers" Car Club in 1957
Here is great example... Jeff Cotten's JHS '61  
Fantastic New COBRA
