    Had my car pictured a couple times in event coverage in CKD & Ol Skool Rodz. Also had the same car plus some of dad's featured with front page coverage in the local newspaper after a reporter spotted us driving the

    roadster around town and flagged us

    My cpe was in the Street Rodder 4 pak twice back when they had that feature. Also in R&C when I was one of those in the R&C Ego-Rama in 05. Has been shown in show coverage many times in Street Rodder and Street Scene. Was in an article in the local news paper and a regional travel brochure. A friend brought me his hotel pass once from a hotel in Louisville because it had a picture of my car on it.

    down. The article featured finished cars and projects and had a large photo captioned 3 generations of hot rodders picturing my dad, son and I standing in front of cars done by us. That was pretty cool.

    My truck is always the vehicle that you can see the corner of the roof peaking out from behind the car behind the car the photographer took the photo of in a photo in a magazine.
    Somewhere there should be a photo of my son and I with the truck at the 1982 Chevy / GMC truckin Nationals in Ogden Utah in a copy of the then Chevy GMC truck club magazine that Seth Dalton out out. I would dearly love to have a copy of that photo or that issue of that magazine.

  9. My best magazine ink, was the one that paid. Fifteen American dollars a pic, I think came to about $106 USD, and after converting to kiwi dollars, it came to 165$.
    Not full sized cars though, it was for two 1/8 scale Hot Rods in Amusin Krusin.
  10. And yesterday, i sent a US Hamber a PM, about his car in a local magazine down here.
    Haven't heard from him, guess he's busy.

    The local paper printed this picture in their coverage of a car cruise. Not really of my truck but through my truck. I thought it was pretty cool. cruise picture.jpg

  17. Coffee table book, a magazine or two that I cant find right now, Morts old HopUp site, and this newspaper article after GV owned it. The before pic was tucked away in the book. And for those not in the know, Rusty aka Tim aka the OP of this thread, his T and my T came off the same NW South Dakota ranch around 15+ years ago. Saltflatt Matt and I went backi a year later and cleaned up the rest of the goodies, it was pretty bare after those trips.
