    Anyone have pictures or information on Norm Grabowski's Henway truck? It's been around for years as his shop truck.

    <font color="green">You talking about the Chevy/GMC truck? Step-side?

    I think I may have some from A Pinhead deal we had and he got that thing striped to the hilt.

    Or are you talking about "Boogie til you Puke?"

    This is the truck Norm is driving now. 1937 Ford 1 1/2 ton. Notice the shovels serving as rear view mirror mounts.

    The FIRST time I saw the Henway was in the early '70s at Street Rod 'Nats in Tulsa....there were three of us (including Unkl Norm) drinking beer, putting the empty cans in the exhaust stacks of the Henway, firing it up and blowing the cans about 50-feet into the air! (Of course, my memory of this event is a little faded...my brother related this story to me after we sobered up!)

    Oh boy! That beer-car blasting exhaust at the Tulsa Nats was something. They wandered through the fairgrounds blowing stacks full of cans up in the air and there were rodders scranbling to deflect them when they came down on or near cars. Those days there was a lot drinking on the grounds and also there were the "Show Us Your Tits" that truck bed riders displayed when passing all our lovely wives and girlfriends in their hot pants, hiphugger jeans, and shelf-cut Tees.
