A trio of hot rod projects keeps John Wilkinson active in retirement...Larry O'TooleEven though he is now retired, John Wilkinson only got started in hot rodding in 1991, but there was plenty of car activity prior to that, mostly in building Street Machines and working on race cars.

Already done and passed onto new owners were a ’31 Model A Ford roadster, ’32 Ford Tudor and another ’23 T bucket.
