Thumbs up Re: SHOW RODS 60 & 70s..stories - pics ?

Does anyone remember seeing the Tastee Freez T-bucket? Last I saw of it was in Downey, CA.

Chris[/QUOTE]

Just joined this list and saw this. I currently own the 1966 Tastee Freez Barris built t-bucket here in NJ. I've had it 8+ or so years now and had the seats & carpets redone. Other than a pair of new front tires its all original but probably looks different than any of the photos you may have seen. The car went back to the Barris shops in early 70's and they made a few changes. They built a new body that looks better, dropped the front end, took off 2 of the fake blowers and now has a windshield. There was supposed to be a custom trailer for it at one time but no one knows what became of that. I should have it on the road again in 2010.

This may have been covered on this thread before, if I apologize.

After reading this entire thread and reliving lots of memories of my childhood, I have been searching the web, but having no luck, for info on a car that was at the World of Wheels show in Eugene Oregon, probably around 1980 or so. It was themed after tv show "Mork and Mindy". I think it was called the "morkmobile". It was basically a big white egg on wheels. It had some rainbow seat inserts, and the steering wheel was on the end of a arm that came out of the center of the dash, like there was a chain inside the arm to ofset the wheel over to the side. It may have been able to swing the wheel over to the other side.
Does anybody know anything about this car?
