    Got one coming. I dig Pat`s writings and slant on all things hot rod and custom. A too tall point of view!

    I just found mine.
    I've just been out of touch, bought my first Rodder's Journal last night #9 and on page 87 is my Panel era 63.
    Met up with an old friend at the last show, he thought the picture was mine. Finally saw a copy last night. What a surprise to see my car and a great picture too.
    Thanks Pat (Surf Rod's).
    Still have the Panel and looks the same, a we bit older.

    Hey Ryan, thanks very much for this big-time mention and the nice words about the book. I really appreciate it. People seem to like it--and it was fun to do. As I've mentioned here on the H.A.M.B., I'll be signing copies at AutoBooks in Burbank on Saturday, and at the SEMA Show in Larivee's art booth. HAMBers come by and say hi if you're in the area.

    Big Thanks, Pat Ganahl
  12. I got my copy about a week ago. Its already been read from cover to cover. It's a cool book!

    Pat is an excellent photographer, writer, historian, Hot Rod builder etc. and has more history in his head (with ALL details) than anyone I know....his books are always top notch.....and he's always ready with a "too tall" story...

    Another one for the Christmas list. My wife is always bugging me about suggestions so this year I'll have a couple to add to the Ardun heads I've been trying to get "Santa" to bring the last few years.

    51Mercules's surviver Custom 51 Merc is in there. Maybe he'll see this and comment on here. Talked to him yesterday and he was telling me he's been collecting parts to get it running again.
    Pat always does top notch books,so this should be a great addition to my other books of his. Looking forward to seeing it.
