Jim McCall first laid eyes on the ’34 Roadster in 1988. It sat unfinished in the corner of a garage he had visited to purchase another classic car, with parts strewn around it and piled inside. He purchased it at the end of 2003, then spent the next four years assembling and restoring until it became the head-turning vintage auto seen today. 

Born with the “car bug,” Jim McCall always exuded an affinity for automobiles. As a young child, he looked forward to each September when the car manufacturers unveiled their newest models, riding his bike throughout Billings from dealership to dealership to see them.

He referred to his love for cars as his “McPassion” only rivaled by his passion for his wife, children and grandchildren. Jim passed away last year, but his cars remain a testament to his dedication, hard work and flair for standing out in a crowd.
