I know, it's hard.
Found this on "415 Disturbing da peace"-race team's website, dunno anything about it;
Great thread - check these out . . .
Deleted. Don't mean to offend due to wheels not being black
Not black wheels. JW
I know I posted a pic of this earlier but she wasn't done. Now she is done and being driven.
Keepin it alive
One more for the bonbonb thread - Cyclone Kevin's 64B as seen at TROG-West tonight
Every time I see this thread reappear it reminds me of our good friend.
Both good and sad at the same time.. I Miss him
Keep this one goin forever!
Black. Check. Black. Check. Black. Check. Yup, it'll do.
Still my favorite thread!
Saw Larry's 3window and its new stable mate last weekend at the LA Classic Auto Show. I thought it was real nice that it was entered as the "Roller Coupe", Bruce Meyer is taking great care of it. Bob
Got to thinking- maybe a black on black on black late A roadster with '31 grill shell on '32 18" might be in the black on black on black thread... and if not, these deserves to be!
Keep 'em kruzin!
Close, but no dice!
Keep 'em kruzin!
Still the mark by which all others will be measured.
Yes it will. I was fortunate enough to meet Larry at the SK-500 when the car was first finished. He was a really good guy and I also miss him.
OK; back to black on black on black...
Okay. My new T Bucket build will be ALL black, but it's not done yet. Gonna be a while, but I've always loved the black cars. Even though red is my favorite color.
Cool, are you still going to have the red accents? JW
Well, there the holes in my axle, which are red. I'm not sure about the interior. It'll be either be red or black. As of today, I'm leaning towards black because my last interior was red. I can also see a little red pin striping.
Three nice B/B/B, AV8s
That's my look as well. Black and chrome..... color isn't needed for a B/W pic.......
If the Frank Mack "T" has already been shown please forgive me. I didn't go back through the entire thread to look. I've been subscribed to this since the beginning but don't remember breakfast this morning let alone a pic I may have seen sometime in the last 11 years. I was looking over a black T years ago at one of the NSRA Nats (Columbus, iirc; late 80's or early 90's). After looking for about 10 minutes and finding a new detail about every 20 seconds this fella gets up outta his lawn chair (not very close to the car, btw) and comes over to introduce himself. Mr. Mack hisself. I had never heard of the car or him, but was very interested in looking the car over, as it was immaculately done. He took quite a bit of time answering all of my questions and never gave me a hint that he or the car were well known. Just one rodder shootin' the breeze with another. Somewhere in all of my photo albums (pre digital) I have several pix of the car. These that I found on the web are undoubtedly better than whatever I have though, even if I had a way to scan mine. So; enjoy:
Some VERY old pix of the car:
And a VERY VERY early pic:
I'm including this even though I always thought black on black on black meant black body, black top, and black interior. Apparently I've been mistaken all these years as many of the cars shown have non-black interiors. My bad if I'm in the wrong.
