Thanks, Rik, for your tireless efforts to preserve custom car history. Your photo archives are one of the customizing world's great treasures.
Bruce and his great tub with the Top off. Early Riders cars at the Throttlers Picnic at Johnny Carson Park. Thanks Socal34
Hey Rik, thanks for all the great Custom Car photos and especially for many of the Tub photos we used here; click over to Rik's site see all the cool cars and other stuff! John W.
Socal34, thanks, keep em coming. JW
That yellow 34 looks familiar. Could it be the Tex Smith touring?
The yellow Phaeton belonged to Lee Hammock, which has since been sold
Nice 36 Tub for sale here on the HAMB
Nice 38 Ford Tub with the old fashioned stance that's coming back lately.
Socal34, you're pulling them out of the woodwork, thanks Man, that 40 Chevy is really a rare one.
The 40 Chevy is a 41, not a 40. It's a car that never existed. The owner had every body style of 41 Chevy, and built this one to go with his 41 2 door convertible.
Thanks, for the correction, it's extra rare!
I did this Christmas Card for a couple of years ago... seems appropriate here and now.
Thank You Rik, what a great card at a perfect time.
Red Heinz classic 23 T Custom tub , chaneled in the rear only, still around today.
Excellent article on it in the current issue of Hot Rod Deluxe.
I was as taken with Red's T tub since I first saw it on the cover of HRM (1950)
I had just 'inherited' my complete HRM collection in a Paper Drive, at age 11...this was in 1953.
Mark "Morty" was so impressed with this car that he did a 'loose' tribute to it with his '27 tub...My tub's also a '27, but on Deuce rails.
I saw Red's tub at a Billetproof run some years back, was amazed that it was the original car. Just amazing, this hobby. (addiction, more like)
Glad that you like my car. It is a convertible sedan... roll up windows. I have just agreed to trade this car for a 36 roadster AND a 36 PHAETON... more of a true "tub" to my way of thinking than the convertible sedan.
I'm betting the HAMB is going to like them both. Flathead powered, old Ford trans and stock rear ends.. with hydraulics!
Here's pic of the back of the phaeton as a teaser until we get the cars swapped around.
Thanks again for the kind words about my car. It is a beauty.
I found what I was looking for! A couple examples of '36 sedans turned into tubs. I recently made a deal on a '36 Ford slantback that I'd love to turn into a tub! Any more pictures of 2 door tub conversions?
Here is one we built in the late 70's
And we used and abused it too.
