My very cool Topolino.
Patiently waiting it's turn in the workshop.
Looks like a Dodge Brothers on the right side of the barn, maybe '22-'27.
I love this car, and this photo of it
I beleive that shoebox is now in Japan. It used to belong to Steve Sellers, who was a member of the HAMB, but is currently "banned" according to his profile page.
first pic of 36 chev woody I've seen,cool
This proves it!
D'oh. I forgot to go look last night. I got home around midnight from school but I just got home a little earlier than usual and am looking it up. It's in TRJ #47 on page 146 and this says it's in TRJ #14 if you want the entire story. Sweet machine for sure.
And 29BowTie is right, it's Steve Seller's who is based in San Jose, CA. According to TRJ, they believe that the Shoebox is in Japan, so 29BowTie is right again as well.
A shot of my 54 laid out on my lawn
Here's a Merc I shot in the Nevada desert about 5 years ago..
More in the album and on the website.
Yes it is in japan but it does not look anything like the picture with the flamethrowers lit. It has been completely redone & is now flat black. It was a car with personality & soul but now that is all gone. It sucks to see what it has now become. Check this thread for more info & pictures of it as it is now:
Here is a picture of a 34 coupe hot rod sitting in a barnyard in Southern Michigan. I took the picture in 1976. After going there several times with no luck finding anyone at home, I finally gave up. 30 plus years later I bought the same car at a garage sale for $4000. What are the chances of that?
Brian is a buddy of mine and he has some of the coolest cars i have seen. this one, with its story is a true treasure and one of my all time favorite cars!
64 belair, 65 impala ss
That really sucks!!
Trying to be on a more positive note.. I can see this is the beginning of its future and hopefully in the end, it will ultimately be restored to what it once was. We all enjoy those stories of people buying cars, discovering the car's historical significance and deciding to restore said car back to their former glory. I can't wait for my kids to be reading the thread; "Seller's Shoebox Found!! Restoration has started!!" on the HAMB a couple decades into the future.
If I'm extremely lucky, I'll be the guy restoring it along with his kids.
Some cool pics from back when?
