    It took me longer to locate more pics and I think there are more around some where, but this is what I found so far.[/ATTACH] View attachment 3756255 View attachment 3756258 [/QUOTE]

    Do you or anyone else have any information on the Dragmaster Streetster frame? It looks like it uses some strange rear suspension.

    The Torsion T was recent;y unearthed by Dave Shuten. I expect we'll be seeing more of it again soon.

    Sorry Gonzo, I don't know nothing about this frame company.
    Happy to know that the car is still alive...

    Dale Kersch?! Remembering the article on the chopped pickup, the chopped delivery was his dad's, used it on sign painting jobs! They built that awesome Thames flip up gasser with 413 power!

    That's (above) a great looking truck. I guess the judging made you leave everything open. I'm sure it would look better closed up.

    That is nice, a step or two this side of crazy. There was a phase of the Chevy pickup that was a Car Craft build I think when it was really a neat looking truck. For me they went too far and then wrecked it flat towing it somewhere.

  20. The truck Sancho posted is not the R&C Dream Truck, It is the Ford F-100 known as the Mountain Pearl from Colorado.

    Yeah, that's it. I knew the one Sancho & Jalopy Joker posted was a Ford but it reminded me of a Chevy, that Chevy. It looked It's best after Winfield and before Barris.
    Man I was only 13 when they wrecked it right after they ruined it. It was headed to a good place when it left Windfield's. A little too much out of the front wheel surround but still a cool Chevy pickup. I know it was an advertisement and work of art and some liked it. For me it was the Emperor's New Pickup.

    I used to think '59 Chevies were the ugliest car ever but now I love them. I like beets now too. :rolleyes:
