Man, every car on this post kicks ass. I originally thought about Tony Nancy's 22jr (the nailhead version) when I saw the title of the post, but didn't have a picture handy.

When did you get those pics Flat Top? That top picture is definitely the original Triple Nickle after it changed hands a couple of times. Killer!

Here it is as featured in Rod N Custom:

You need to borrow that pic, scan it, and have posters made.

It's an awesome picture...composition, timing, everything.

By the way, there is more historical info on the Waters & Murray Triple Nickel Roadster here:

Wow Mutt! I had never seen any of those. There are a couple other pics of the T in Hot Rod's drag racing coverage during the year (1962), but I'd never seen those particular pictures since a few of those issues are missing from my collection.

I don't know how that Jan '63 article on the original Triple Nickel got by me...thanks for posting all that. I'm sure Flat-top Bob will be thanking you too.

mutt, thanks for the heads up on the story in hrm 1963
bass, bob johnson and don morgan were buddies of don's and i think he had bought the car from them before 1963. the custom car supply name is on both cars.

Bass - The reason I built my roadster in '65 was because of cars like that. I was a big fan of Tony Water's fuel roadster in the late 50's because he was beating dragsters.

Cool, Bob! Looks like that was signed by CJ "Pappy" Hart himself...Why isn't it framed?

Anyone know the story on that red "Bob & Don" 32 roadster in the previous post on this page ? Very Cool, and looks as though it was restored ....What's the history ?
