    This was re-released in model car form a few years ago. Original owners/builders Steve Tansey & Glen Yeary, were both residents in nearby Tipton County, IN. Glen Yeary brought the car to a friend of mine's shop for a complete mechanical re-do, specifically a complete chassis built form scratch so this car could actually be driven reliably and dependably if desired. Other parties handled the paint/bodywork and engine rebuild, still utilizing four 4 barrel carbs. Car still has the same Cragars and Indy car tires. I didn't have a hand in the rebuild, but I remember occasionally holding things in place so something could be welded here and there. Pretty cool just to be around such a thing 20+ years ago. I have a couple pics I took of it at a local car show after its completion in 1988 or so. I believe Glen Yeary took the car with him to South or North Carolina when he retired from his day job several years ago. I just read on here that it is currently on display in Concord, NC.

    This car is why I have a '34 sedan today. Although I never was a fan of the wood treatments, the car sat perfect and I was hooked forever.
    Ron Weeks owned this and about a year after this photo, it was painted a bronze color. This car was a monster. The blown Olds drove people nuts.
    We took about 15 cars from the "Early Times Club" in Long Beach to Eugene, Oregon in October of 1967 for a three day indoor show, this being one of them.
    I had just turned 17 and was in 12th grade in high school. My parents took me out of school to go on this trip. Great fun, great people.
    I had so many crazy stories when I got home.
    1967 was a good year for me. Just a few months earlier than the Oregon trip, my buddy and I drove his T-Bucket with an Olds with six Strombergs from Los Angeles to St. Louis...that was when I was 16.
    I got my first hot rod this year (1967), a pretty ratty Model A panel delivery with a SBC, my first street legal car.

    Mutt....great job on these scans!
    You did the HAMB a huge service.
    Many of the cars are L.A. based "Early Times" cars.

    Great pictures! You must have scanned away 2-3 days doing all these.
  13. I watched Joe Gemsa build this T in his El Monte shop in the early 60's. Every piece on the car was from some old race car. Pieces Joe had collected over many years. The Model B ran one of Joe's own single stick heads. Sounded like an Offy.

    I clearly remember when the feature car pages changed from the green ink to the glossy color shots. What a difference!! I had never seen candy rootbeer before. All these bring back many memories of the excitement that I felt when I got home to find the new Hotrod in the mail box. Thanks that took a little time to scan all of those.
  26. Thanks Muttley, time travel is possible........what a cool bunch of pix.
  27. some great pics there....appreciate you sharing them
  28. I can imagine all the time it took to scan and post all those great shots. Much appreciated Muttley. Thank you! It was great to grow up in that era. I remember it like it was yesterday. I just can't remember yesterday. :confused:
  29. Thanks.

    Appreciate the effort you put in.
