    There is a replica of that car out here. It's made the rounds quite a bit. It's gorgeous.

    The Tyrods built it. I can't remember who exactly right now.

    Last year's Autorama:

  6. Is it a replica? I thought it was the original, but I could be wrong.

    I HAD NO IDEA. Under a rock is where I've been...

    I'd love to shoot this car.

    As I recall from the conversation I had last year, yes, it is a faithful re-creation of the original. I believe it was done in tribute to Carl Carpenter but my memory is foggy on the details. I was pretty excited when I got up close to the car. I narrowly missed it at the Fitchburg swap meet show the year before (it was leaving on a trailer by the time I got over there)

    I would be a bit surprised if the Ty-Rods don't bring it back to the Boston Autorama again (March 22nd - 24th).

    The Ty-Rods contact info is here:
    https://www.ty-rods.org/contactus.html
    I'm sure someone with the organization can help you make that happen.
     
  11. Check with the Ty-Rods rod & custom club, I would think one of their members can put you in touch with the owner, real or recreation, it's a knock out! HRP

    Contact information for the Ty-Rods

  15. Paul Aldrich was very instrumental in restoring several New England hot rods, & race cars. One of the more significant cars was the Bannister brothers 1932 Ford roadster

    The 400jr has been at the New England racing museum up in Loudon, NH since last year. Get in touch with Paul, im sure he'd be happy to accommodate you and he has a great knowledge of hot rodding here in the northeast

    The header grabbed me,as [cool cars and square roll bars],was what a saw a lot of, going to oval track races in late 50s an very early 60s. One I liked a lot as a teen,was this one; note the square tube roll bars,but round tube frame, not just welded with 90* corners. Power was new at the time,a big Ford FE w 6x2s,this bulit an driven by Buzz Berton of Tampa Fla.,
    The race cars nick was the Road Grater,he won a lot. Roll bars seen then were a mix,some used round an others used Sq. ,every one built there own pretty much out of any thing that was free or close !

    All true about Paul. He is a wealth of knowledge and great guy. He actually signed my copy of the book. Snowman

    I've been cover to cover with my copy a trillion times looking over every little detail, stealing ideas and learning the ropes.

    Ha! For some reason I always found cars from this part of Merica closer to ones built in Oz in this time in relation to function being a priority,and they loved a heavy channel here, Love the book!Did the above coupe run at Trog on the beach?

    I wonder if anyone knows how many New England Speed shops there were. I was a youngster of about 16 and would go into one in Lowell Mass. on occasion. It was like a trip to the promised land! Saw stuff I lusted after but couldn't afford. Didn't have enough knowledge to even speak intelligently about hi performance cars and hot rods but sure knew what I liked!

    It's a classic rodding book, and I really enjoyed reading it. It's somewhere in a box, and will go to my car loving nephews some day.

    Read it on loan from the library years and years ago. Good stuff.

    I feel like I’ve seen different old photos of that car in the not so distant past. Hopefully it’ll come to mind where that may have been

    I keep that book under the seat in my 32. I actually am pretty happy to have a couple of parts on mine from an Olds powered coupe listed in the book as a class winner at one Massachusetts airport drags in the late 50s. The guy who owned/built it was very proud to say he was mentioned in the book. He still had the car when I bought a lot of stuff from him.

    Very cool car. and book!
    Anyone know what became of the original? Did it get turned into a Jalopy racer, get rolled and scrapped? Or does it live unrecognizable (and history lost) as an unchanneled, full fendered Hot Rod/Street Rod with a stock 34 grille/hood?

    I am honored that Bernie thought enough of my roadster to include it in the second edition (2006) on page 231.
