  1. This car is Badass, and I love to know what happened to it. I'd also like to have it.

    How about this 26-Tee ?? A B'Ville Street Roadster past record holder and at 1 time a street driven roadster note, the temporary Tag. It's been 214 mph with its previous owners (great guys). Dirty 2 club at El Mirage as well. 357.PNG 1979 B Ville 3 .jpg 1995 B Ville 1a .jpg 1983 ElMirage 6 .jpg 357.PNG 1979 B Ville 3 .jpg 1995 B Ville 1a .jpg 1983 ElMirage 6 .jpg Some of these pix were borrowed from Petersen Archives web-site

    Yes, it's cool but I would have to be 4' tall in order to drive it. :D

    Pretty amazing stuff over there, but is that watermark plastered right in the middle of the image really necessary?

    Probably not but it is what it is.
    It'd be cool if they had prints for sale.

    Dean, look at pix of 1917 (+/-) Buick roadster. I think that this thing is all Buick, nailhead and all. Of course I could be wrong.

    Quite possibly my favorite rod of all time, definitely my favorite T...
    I'd take it in either fashion (but not in it's white, dual slicked, high-back seated iteration).

    I remember seeing it a few times at shows and it raised my heart rate, not many did that. I watched a copy of a home movie Norm took while hauling ass in it driving one handed holding the camera in the other. What a guy, what a car! One of the guys helping me with my roadster now was friends with Norm back then, lots of stories.

    A couple years ago at GNRS there was a tribute car built in it's first version, although minus the blower.

    "Rick Zumbo had this cool display for his 1922 Ford T-bucket. This car is a tribute to the original version of the Norm Grabowski T-bucket, the Lightnin’ Bug, before the days of the famous Kookie T. (Original car was shown at the National Roadster Show back in 1955 when it was held in the Oakland area.)" Hot Rod Magazine article
