    Al Hawkins' '27 Chevy, (1946)
    The '34 Ford grille works well with those front fenders.

  4. A tub with air in a flathead car amazing. Mo and Hot Rod Nut thanks for posting tubs here. JW
    Light color and blackwalls look good. Around 1957 in So Cal blackwalls and white wheels were all the rage "The Competition Look", lasted for a year or two.

  11. Was out driving this great tub today, what a pleasure to roll around town in style, going again tomorrow this is my current 40's sled, so glad they are back in style! I made the hood peak last 7" open the original hood latch. Thanks to Richard Ruth for making the latch assy from my Drawing, it works perfect! Thanks Rik Hoving for the picture. Thanks to Lirones Mototsports for getting it running great and North Hollywood Upholstery for doing the outside of my Carson top.

  14. The Nash and A tubs look great, thanks for posting them Ken and Al
    This Nash is killing me they look so much like a 40 ford custom. My best friend in Jr High's Mom had one we were trying to get it to be a Ford, stole some of his Moms' vaccum cleaner stainless pipe and made side exhausts out of it. This red car above has brought all those memories back. Any more pictures of it?

    Without a doubt one of the best bodymen ever, I don't think I'm far off the mark in saying that Bertolucci was about 18 years old when he did this top...And it's a Lift-Off! (Check closely for the seam.)

  26. Yes, that's Bonneville and an early shot of the Merc before the taillights were moved up to the fenders and the exhaust was routed through the bumper.
