It reminds me of one of my favorites, and help with the owner as my brain is frozen
Why was there so many '26-'27s and few '17 to '25s. ???
Very cool '26 Touring!
I grew up in Fremont in the '60s and thought I knew every hot rod in town ... but don't remember seeing Mr. Mack's Tub.
Coincidentally ... I started a new thread last night (1966 OAKLAND ROADSTER SHOW ARCHIVES) ... and the photo I chose to post in the OP is of Chuck Brazier's '29 Hiboy ... and Jim Mack's '26 Tub:
Yup, tubs are fun!
Great lookn' tub then and still. Just the right mix of early 60's HOT and antique.
FUNNY, I remember Chuck Brazier: says he is from Oakland, but license plate says Washington State.
I remember him sitting at the A&W Drive Inn, in Longview Washington in the 60's.
Me thinks he was from Castle Rock, Wash.
Wonder if he is still around?
Steel subrails and the mounting holes line up almost perfectly on a model A frame.
Been awhile since mine had graced the board.

That's my kind of Hot Tub! The others posted are mighty fine too.
'26 / '27's were all steel construction, the earlier bodies had wood framing.
The all steel bodies just survive better.
Didn't Cub Barnett or someone Barnett have a good one?
'cause they was still ridin' hosses?
I understand about the wood, but weren't the cowls on the early T's quite narrow? Not saying it's impossible to upgrade, just a little more difficult/ 5# of stuff in a 2# bag kinda thing. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Wonder where he got the idea for the headers?
Norm Grabowski built a '24-'25 touring, became my mother the car (TV flop )
probably sitting in a TV prop warehouse, or crushed, like to know.. this is what Hollywood did to this car:
John's tub. HRP
Forgive my ignorance, but who is John? ... a fellow HAMBer? ... a fellow South Carolina Hot Rodder? ... ???
At any rate, he has a cool tub!

Love the "Tubs", here's mine 27/28 .
Saw it advertised for sale the other day. Super tempting!
Mine's a '27, currently on 'A' rails...have one left front fender, and one left rear. Considering the ol' '29fenders & running boards trick. Or go fenderless for awhile... Tubs are hot...

Without Question I'm a Tub man. These are more fun than anything you can own. I'm a little biased though
