  1. Great photos, Danny. Thanks to John for getting them. I wish we'd see more channeled full fendered cars today, don't know why they went out of style...I think they're cool. This one especially.

    Yep. That's it. I sent the picture to my Mom. She thinks that was at Gatlinburg. One of these days, I am going to start a "where is now" thread and see if anyone knows what happen to it. After Tom Pekel sold it, it went out west and lost track of it.

  3. On second look, maybe it's sectioned, anyway it's cool.

  4. I believe that's Lou Armbruster from Ohio. That's Freddie standing in front of it for sure. Tom Pekel wound up with the car.

  6. Just caught up with the post's. Pekel sold it to a crook here in Louisville and I don't know where it went after that.

    Danny, Thanks for posting this old stuff. That's me behind my old 29' Roadster with
    under carbed Olds engine. I'm guessing the old pics supplied by John is my old friend
    transplanted from the hoosier state. As many have commented, I am saddened by Tex
    passing. He contributed so very much to the Hot Rod movement. Tex father actually
    was involved in the construction of the 29'. Hope you and your wife doing well.

  21. That's right, Danny. I remember guys like Orv Elgie and Wayne Henderson were keeping the traditional theme alive with Resto-Rod cars at the time. We would soon witness the 80's with the Pro-Street look, Easter-egg paint jobs with tons of graphics and tweed interiors and massive amounts of Billett aluminum. Thankfully true art and traditional styling have a way of transcending all of the fads that come and go over time.

    Thanks for the great posts. Noted we Americans were not so heavy back then. What year was the beautiful young lady with the red hot pants with rod an custom written on them. I used to have the magazine but who knows now. Then some few years back one of the guys posted her again wearing the same shorts. Guess we call this thread drift!
  28. My dad would drive this 35 Ford roadster to the NSRA Mini Nats in Lodi, Ca. sometimes. Put a lot of miles on it in the 70's. He liked the hotrod look even then.The car is not in the family sadly. It rests unfinished in Wash.State. It needs to be back on the road. 420102_201517643289216_100002929463998_364240_617043336_n.jpg

    I absolutely love these pics, I was born in '71, so my earliest exposure to rods was to cars that looked like this. I think it's worth noting, that a good number of these cars are very traditional. Probably more so than many modern "traditional" builds, and I believe many early 70's hot rods were genuine traditional, built in the 50's and 60's cars. Although many were updated to the times with paint and wheels and tires.

    I'm all for bringing back these times...just don't bring back tires sticking out side the fenders (hate it then, hate it now) and overstuffed van style interiors. Dad had a '39 Plymouth that I couldn't shut the doors because the interior was so stuffed!
