    Go to this site and click on "Historical" on the left sidebar. It will tell you all you want to know about Wayne Horning and the heads he designed and the people who who tried to keep it going. Funny thing is that in his later life he didn't think it was any big deal.

    Much as I love 'em, I have to point out the Pontiac 8 lugs on the roadster above that make it from the wrong decade. Looks like someone had a wrecked Grand Prix or some such as a donor.:cool:

    I too have always liked that top picture when it turns up. Definitely late 50s- early 60s. Your Coupe is very nice and right on!

    I'm sure I posted these somewhere on the HAMB, but these are from the club my dad was in during the late '50s.

    My friend Ed bought a running 34 Fordor for $100(?). He found a 5-window for $35 and we were to scrap the Fordor and install the coupe´ body. His dad told us there was no way that small coupe´ would fit on the chassis. Don't always listen to your elders.

    rc57. Those are great pictures. I especially like the mud&snow tires on the white Chevy pickup. The whole shop truck thing is on of my favorite styles.
     
  17. That stood out for me as well!

    While looking this pic of the 27 & 34 Fords over, I recognized a car that appears to be the car that went onto win the GNRS-Oakland Roadster Show in 1962. 7D992688-B3B4-4D61-9C1E-FB673BBC8F98.png
    This Tahitian Red 27 is the Twister T-Roadster that George Barris won the 9’ Trophry in a metalflake green hue with the deletion of the rear tubular nerf bar, the addition of the head rests made with bicycle handle bars and the quad head lights just to name a few.

    Looking over the images one can see their corresponding components that stayed with the car through present. I saw this car @ a Palm Springs Cruising Association monthly Cruise night back in the late 80’s. I recognized it from its features in the mags as the 62 AMBR. Somehow I remember it in Indio as well.
    It is definitely an interesting build whoever actually built it back in the 50’s. JNAKI has informed me that this was shot in Riverside. Co. So perhaps that’s where it originated from?
    Reading Eric Geisert’s SRM Milestones article, I read that it spent time in Oregon as well. Another found with some cool previous history.

    How prevalent was painting the firewall a different color than the body?

    I just looked thru this thread which I started many moons ago. There were a few transgressions, but it stayed amazing true to it's orig intent. Thanks to all who posted on this one. It is a testimonial to what 50's Hot Rods really were and to an extent what 50's Hot Rodding was really like.

    RE early, non-fat fendered customs, IMHO cars like this one were heavily influenced by the sports car scene and are in many ways sports rods, versus pure customs in the chopped, tail draggin', skirted, spots n lakes pipes, vein. But I could be wrong. Gary

    The 3rd pick was from 57 National Roadster Show
    Second pick is from 59 National Roadster Show
    It’s now supporting wire wheels and side and rear pipes
