  10. The chute photo is at Pomona, 1963. It was taken by the late Kaye Trapp, one of the owners of the Magicar. The photo three posts above was also taken by Kaye, on the same day. If I would have known Kaye was going to be shooting that day I would have polished the damn wheels!
     
  11. And it's also worth mentioning for those who don't know, that Deans ol Ford now resides in England, with an English Hamber caretaker.
    Such a great little pickup, great history, and great that Deans here to share info/history with us.
    Thanks Dean for all your input on this great site

    I'd just turned 11 when I put down two quarters and bought that January 1962 issue, thought it was cool that someone a bit older than me had built a Hot Rod. Bob

    One of my first issues of Hot Rod and one of those images that is imprinted in my mind forever. Back then, with probably a quarter or two in the pocket and endless racks of mags at the local news stand, you had a tough decision on which one(s) to buy! The Hot Rod guys put Dean's PU on the cover and it was a done deal that day and I still have it. The car has no bad angles so every shot is a gem! Thanks, Dean and the all those that had a part in these iconic images.

    Hey Guys,
    Well, that HRM cover not only started something at our high school and local Bixby Knolls Drive In gab sessions, but everyone was envious of that teenage kid that actually made the cover of HRM. HRM!!! That was the coolest thing going, but secretly, we were all in awe, as well as having "dagger eyes" against that kid from Pomona.

    We were in our high school senior year, customizing our cars, drag racing and cruising around almost everywhere...but HRM cover? Teenage envy and ego...Sheesh !!!

    Actually, I met Dean when he was around 8 or 9 years old, racing quarter midgets against a good family friend of ours at several local So Cal racetracks. But to us, he was a great driver that gave our friend competition in those quarter midgets. (Impressive driving skills for a little kid.) The introduction was soon forgotten until the article came out years later in HRM. Memories and history go hand in hand... as well as notoriety that we all need as teenagers. Great job, Dean...
