Parade Cars

Karl "Bud" Kovacs of Kovacs Machine Company writes:

We were asked to build two parade cars. A local volunteer fire department had two 1930 Fords that they had used in parades in the mid-1950s and 1960s. The cars had been in storage since 1966 and were in poor condition. After we tore the cars down to the frames, we decided we needed a new MIG welder to build the sub-frames for the project.

Since we have been a Welders Supply (Erie, PA) customer for many years, we asked the sales person for an opinion on what type of welder we needed. After many options were discussed, we chose the Lincoln® SP-135 MIG welder.

Our Lincoln® SP-135 worked absolutely perfect!! We spent many hours welding without ever having a problem.

Thanks for a great machine!!
