    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:

    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?

    '26 / '27's were all steel construction, the earlier bodies had wood framing.
    The all steel bodies just survive better.

    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!
  17. Wonder where he got the idea for the headers? :)

    Forgive my ignorance, but who is John? ... a fellow HAMBer? ... a fellow South Carolina Hot Rodder? ... ???

    At any rate, he has a cool tub!

    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...
