Overdue for a buuuuuuuuump!
Way way overdue for bumpage!!!
Taken at Detroit Autorama this year
Good bump Chip. Okay guys here is what you get at the end of the road. You get to meet the founders of it all.
Damned cool Gary! That's one of those things that I wish I could remember to ask. I always talk to my hot rod heros, get a bit star struck and forget to ask for an autograph.
Each signature is a story. Great memories.
I really enjoyed the Hot Rod article. What really makes me like your car is that yoy drive the shit out of it and it's low buck. Simple = fun. Can you post up some more details?
Here's the online Hot Rod article for anyone that wants to see it.
Finally got mine all sorted out:
After body work and paint:
Then I restitched the interior:
Rod & Custom 1/58
^^ Very cool!
Mine before i got it less motor, box and wheels.Has a 1950 Bonneville Speed Week sticker still on the screen.
Both are cool!
Sent using the NEW Droid HAMB app from atop my toilet.
My '27 RPU
All work on this blue T was done at home,even the paint and seats.
This is my son's "23 T" called "Pandora" ,it dose get some nice lady's asking to set in her for a photo!, My son Lance and I built it 3 years ago and had a lot of fun doing it on low $ ,by buying up a few failed projects cheep to get parts,a some parts were not exactly what he wished for tire wise,but useible tell there gone and he going buy or fine smaller rears. I also helped build the red "T" with a good buddy of mine about 7 years ago.
I'd love to find some more photos of T's built in a style similar to this one:
That's the Bill Schoenleber roadster. Beautiful car. I'm surprised there aren't more tributes to the Isky T running around.
You and I both.
These earlier T bodies w/ turtle decks make great looking early rods
Here is the Street Rodder article on it.
Video of that little Isky T tribute car. Not the best quality unfortunately. I would love to see more video of it.
...when executed correctly. I love an early T roadster on a full frame with a tutle deck done up like this....the proportions are just perfect.
I would love to meet Isky....take him for a ride and ask him to sign the Dash of my '26 roadster. that would be the ultimate.
I have a bunch more of that car here
You need to take your roadster to LARS some Fathersday. It will be a hit. Think next year is the 50th year anniversary. I'm planning to be there. Can't really tell, is your paint shinny? Although they are lightening up some the main show is for "finished roadsters" and that means shinny paint. If not you can still park in the swap area and some say that is more fun anyway. Iski is there often but he is getting older as all us are. I do have a lot of those ultimate memories. Grabowski, Ivo, Roth, and Iski. Start your own list.
Fellas I gotta tell ya'
Isky's T, Clayton's T and this one is (IMO) Is the goal.
That car really makes me regret selling my 22 T roadster.
