Features 1940's period correct hot rods

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by erlomd, Nov 28, 2009.

  1. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I went through all 75 pages last night because I saw this picture on the first page. This is my grandfather Elmer omohundro in the hat and the other guys name is ray morisette. Both were members of the Pasadena roadster club. This picture has to be around august 1948 or so. Out of 75 pages one picture of my grandpa. One more fort collection.

    I don't think I've contributed anything to this thread yet? Anyways, here's a few pictures of my (former) '27 T Roadster and my dad's (Richard Lacy) '34 Roadster posed together outside of our shop. My Dad purchased his car in 1981. It was all original and about half taken apart. After over 20 years of it doing nothing we finally built it into the hot rod shown here in '04. I built the T between May '05 and June '07 from gathered pieces. Both cars are built entirely from real vintage parts, none of which newer than '48 except for my Dad's '51 Lockheed seats. The T was (stupidly) sold in Feb '13 and now resides in Melbourne, Australia with it's new caretaker Mark Bailey of the River City Coupe & Roadster Club. My Dad still has his car.

    I bought this 31 last year from a friend of mine here in Norway. The body was imported from the US to Sweden some years ago. It is apparently from an old race car. I beleive it says "Mads Speedshop" or similar on the sides. A slim chance I guess but anyone has any story on it?

    Thanks Never2low! Literally got the car running and driving the day before the show. I was starting it by touching two wires together and ran out of gas at the show, haha.

    Screenshot (1).png Well that can't be an old movie. They told me on the HAMB that a track roadster pickup wasn't a thing back then. I guess that #53 truck missed the memo.

  26. I just rolled my project outside for a better look this morning. It's still in the mock up stage but it is progressing. Check out my build thread if you want to see more!
