    That coupe looks a lot like my current 40. What year do you think this picture was taken?

    It was from the 6th annual Motorama Oct 1955 in Los Angeles. I scanned the picture from the Rod & Custom March 2013 issue.

    Found a great blog, "Drugstore Cowboy" which has five years of posts of mainly old photograph about hot rods, dragstrips and car shows. So get in Mr. Peabody's Wayback Machine with me and return to those days of yesteryear! more to come tumblr_n9on4zevBA1rpcgy4o1_500.jpg tumblr_ncorsqZycf1rpcgy4o1_500.jpg tumblr_nepsm6jPk31rpcgy4o1_500.jpg tumblr_nmvh60VXHi1rpcgy4o1_500.jpg hrdp_9812_04_o+generation_x_rat_rod_car_club+1940_custom.jpg

    Nice Ride Mr Norton......Love the wide whites, big n littles and the stance.

  28. Here's a 40 coupe I picked up about a month ago from a friend that built it but hardly ever drove it.
    It's an excellent driver. Might be a bit too street roddy (Air, heat, mustang II, etc.) for this site but it's very understated and looks pretty traditional.
