    Jim Jard in Houston had the Kennedy Brothers build the tribute. If I recall the conversation with Jim correctly, he tried to track down the original. As all of Jim's cars and everything out of the Kennedy Brothers shop, it kicks butt. I thought it was strange that Monogram did it as a roadster?

    Some pics of a completed model. I have to say, it was pretty neat finding out that this was patterened after a genuine article hot rod. I bought it years ago already built for a dollar.

    My name is Bob Swan. My grandfather was Frank Bash good friend w/ Freddy Allen who might be connected to the DEUCE. I’ve been going through lots of old photo and found a few that might interest you. Do you guys recognize this drag car? Thanks

    "the outlaw" joe nocentino's rail that was a fred allen creation out of phill. FYI the remnents of this rail have been given to joe nocentino's son in hopes that it be re-created. a good friend had the rear alum swoop body, the front axel & a few other odds & ends off of the original rail.
    hopefully we will se it recreated to it's original glory.

    This old thread revived !! - - - you gotta love the Jalopy Journal !!
    The Satan being a Philadelphia Area car, check out a newer thread, "Old Time Philadelphia Area Hot Rods and Drags" Besides the "Satan's Deuce" there are a lot of pictures of other cars from that era and the Philadelphia Modifiers too.

    Yes that video is awesome !!!! Although I was friends with some the Satans guys, I was too young at the time to be able to travel to where they raced. I was 14 in 1958, so I never actually got to see the car run down the track. I only got to the drags at Hatfield and Langhorne in Pa. in those days I would hitchike to the drags. I did see the Satans car at Hatfield Drags once in 1958 or 1959, they did not race it, for what ever reason.
    That car was hauling ass in that video and sounded awesome !

    The picture of the Satan coupe was one of the many I took at the 1957 Oklahoma NHRA Nationals.

    bobyhist, which picture is yours?? Did you see the Satans Deuce run at Oklahoma City in 1957 ? Do you remember what times it ran ? I am curious about the performance. I remember that everyone talked about how it was a stand out performer!!
