The Ironmen Foundation provides scholarships for the children of our fallen U.S. warriors.

A Strategic Partnership is Born.

We are honored to announce our strategic partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation.
  We share a mutual mission – providing scholarships to the children of fallen warriors.
But, our two foundations are very different in one respect …
They are big.
We are small.
While we can build and auction outstanding cars …
Folds of Honor is in a better position to see that the money we raise
 gets into the hands of military kids who deserve good educations.

So … what’s next?

Our new fund raising project is called “Dress Blues”.

The Ironmen Foundation is building this truck in 2019-21.
We will tour the nation with this iconic hot rod in 2021.
We will then auction it at the prestigious
Barrett-Jackson/Scottsdale auction.
The proceeds from that auction will provide
scholarships for the children of fallen U.S. warriors.

Our heroes have suffered.
Their children have suffered, too.
Did you see our first project?
It was a 1932 Ford roadster we called
the “Metal of Honor”?

(see Metal of Honor page)

This roadster helped us to provide 30 scholarships to deserving kids.


Our all-volunteer army is building our second Fund Raising Hot Rod.

Dress Blues started all because of this RealSteel “phantom” pick up body donated by Steve’s Auto Restorations

But, what’s a great body without a great chassis? Total Cost Involved solved that issue with this complete rolling platform.

It is a 1934 Ford pick up truck unlike any pick up truck Ford ever built.
It’s a “phantom” truck with a totally custom cab fitted to a totally
custom bed and, when complete, it will be uncommonly cool.
Lo and behold, this baby has a brand new
