    Very True Statement, This car was sevearl years ahead of its time, Just check out the Pre-Pete & Jakes 4 Bar Split Bones Set Up. This type of geometry derived from 50's era sprint cars and was just probably making it's way to street cars, It appears a change was coming;).

    GREAT photos :cool:... though I don't think anyone will be rushing to bring back or imitate these particular hair and clothing styles anytime soon. ;)

    Thanks for a vivid flashback to my misspent youth. Lots of (very) familiar images here.

    Yep. And the frame was covered with engine covered stainless, pickup bed is wood. Sounds strange, but it looked so damn good.

    "tubster" in 1966

    Muttley...........thanks so much for all the work posting this! This thread should be required reading for anyone thinking about building a car today.
    If you think "Man, wait till they see what I'm doing, it's sure its NEVER been done like this!, read this thread.
    If you think you have to have flat black paint, an a flathead, and red wheels to be cool, read this thread.
    If you think "I can't build a car as nice as the magazine ones 'cuz I just work out of my one-car garage with a few tools", read this thread.
    If you think "back in the day, they were all built like this", read this thread.

    If you just enjoy the huge variety of great cars that have been built by some very (and not so very) talented people over the years, read this thread.

    Thanks again!! It is threads like this one that make the HAMB such a neat place to hang out.

    I remember this one well. Around 1970 I was driving my '40 coupe out to a gathering in Palm Springs. Going out I-10 getting close to there in the nice open road I see this beautiful bronze colored sedan gaining on me. When he gets even with me I ease into my throttle to keep up even with this great ride. Much to my surprise, he just keeps on pulling away. Without getting into a real drag race I can see this fellow just has more power than I do. My '40 also had a 394 & I'd recently ran it in street form at El Mirage timed at 128 MPH. I wasn't used to getting left behind on the interstate. It was bronze then, running a full hood & sidepanels to hide that blower. Man, what a ride!
    Thanks, Muttley

    Talk about a small world. I was with a large group of about 40 rods in 1970 going out the I-10 to Palm Springs and this sedan was part of the group.
    The was a run of "Vintage Tin" and "Early Times" members, and Ron's sedan was indeed with us and painted bronze at this time.
    But, I'm sure you would have remembered the dozens of other rods.
    Maybe it was just another date that you had your "sighting".
    We were on our way to visit the aerial tramway and have a picnic.
    Ron had built a large gas tank as this car consumed plenty of fuel..

    Great thread, thanks! However, I think that they are all photo shopped as there are real paint jobs, the women don't have tats and the guys are wearing A-1 peggers and collared shirts. Looking at the cinder block backgrounds, I think a lot of those shots were taken in the parking lot behind 5959 Hollywood Blvd.

    Mazooma - I remember seeing a flyer for the run I went on in Antique Automotive in Rosemead, Gene Scott's if I remember right. I was not in or really didn't know anyone of the street clubs. But as I recall, the run ended in a City park near the towns center & everyone just visited & bench raced. I can't even recall seeing the sedan there. Not knowing anyone I didn't hang around too long. I always preferred driving. It was some months later I saw the new H.R. pictorial & the bronze sedan was the centerfold. It was only then I found out what it had for power. Even more impressed me then. I saw too many 'show motors' that were not too good at making power. That baby performed as well as it looked!

    I saw the sedan in Winston Salem, what impressed me was the inlaid wood on it. And the blown Olds motor.
