Motion Pictures Hot Rod Herman...

  1. Yea, I'd say so. But the current Photoshop was definitely many a young boy's dream years before there was such a thing as Photoshop. ;)

    I grew up in a restaurant as a kid and I remember fondly the time Fred Gwynn (Herman Munster) came in for dinner.
  3. NOTE: The dragster that beats Herman in the "Munster Koach" is Bill Martin's "400 Jr. (CT STROKERS)" B/FD ... a '64 Woody Gilmore dragster powered by a supercharged nitro-burning 327 Chevy ... most likely driven by Gary Cassidy or maybe Sam Davis (@carsick on the H.A.M.B.):

    Here's a couple pics of the "400 Jr. (CT STROKERS)" dragster from Sam's "Dragster Days..." album:

    the funniest part of the show was when Herman asked about what the other car was called. The guy said it is a rail. And Herman said one of my wives relatives was run out of town on one of those, but it wasn't that modern.....

    As a HUGE fan of that "Munster's" episode, thank you for clearing THAT up.

    Don't ruin it! A lot of 60's "sock babies" came from that pic.

    I had these on my work computer as the screen savers- the people I worked with thought it mighty strange...

    Brett Barris brought that car to one of our club gatherings about ten years ago; he told me it was a running but well-used T-bucket for which he built a fairly simple sheet metal coffin body - just a fun toy. Nice guy too.

    On the Dragula, note they substituted chrome reverse wheels and cheater slicks when they made the movie - guess that was to make it handle somewhat better on the road course.

    I remember building the model kit that had both cars and I currently have the 1/18th scale models of both cars. The show was one of my top favorite to watch, no matter how many times I'v seen a episode, and show itself only ran for 2 or 3 years.

  23. I love that Zombie video. Even though the Koach is in the Dragula video.

    Guess it's because there's no room to slam witches in the back of the Dragula...... :rolleyes:
