John Southern
Corbin, Kentucky
1941 Chevy Coupe

Back in 1965, when John Southern was 16, he knew at least two things: He was the owner of a 1941 Chevy coupe, and that he would finish the build of his car when he returned from Vietnam after serving as an infantryman. Nothing is certain in life but, luckily, John did return home, although it has taken him more than 40 years to finish up the coupe the way he always wanted to. He likes his STREET RODDER magazine, and says it was a great source of information and inspiration during the build. And we'd like to say "thank you" to John, too

We want photos of your street rod, whether it's under construction or finished. Or maybe you know of a place where some early iron is just "rusting in peace." Send us a handful of good, sharp, 4x6-inch photo (not inkjet) prints in the mail to the address below or email digital images (each should be least 2 MB in size, or just set your camera at its highest setting) of the front and rear three-quarter views, the engine, and the interior. Camera phone shots aren't good enough quality. Email the info about you and your car to eric.geisert@sorc.com, or mail the prints and specs to:STREET RODDER / Early Iron, 1733 Alton Parkway, Suite 100, Irvine, CA 92606. SORRY, PRINTS WILL NOT BE RETURNED.
