1954 Ford Skyliner


Even Dallas Probate Attorneys Have Hobbies

It’s important for lawyers to have hobbies and passions outside of the law office. I am passionate about probate law in Collin County and Dallas County, but I also love getting my hands dirty outside the office. I hope you’ve already noticed that I enjoy woodworking and playing clarinet in the Richardson Community Band. Here is my newest endeavor…

The 1954 Ford Skyliner

If you’ve never heard of a 1954 Ford Skyliner, it is a very unique old car. It has a transparent plastic panel in the roof–which is pretty forward-thinking for back in 1954. Ford only made about 13,000 Skyliners in 1954, so they don’t come up for sale often. When I found a “rusty and crusty” Skyliner for sale in McKinney, Texas, I couldn’t resist the investment.


It looked ugly the first time I saw it, but I bought it anyway. It’s the idea of the car that sold me, not the actual car itself. The car will be very nice. Eventually. In the meantime, this Texas probate lawyer will learn all kinds of new skills.


Work Has Already Started

Once home, the Skyliner went from ugly to uglier. To make her pretty again, the Skyliner must first be completely disassembled.


I have already removed most of the nasty old interior, including all of the hay that made its way into the car (the car had been in a field for 20 years). I have removed the doors and the hood.


She’s just beautiful, right? Maybe not, but at least work has already started. My next step is to continue completely dismantling the car, removing the car body from the frame, and finding all the rust.

This project will take time, but I will try to update the progress here periodically.
