RIP Norm.....Thank you for all you did for us!
i wish i'd have known him. another great scene stealer gone.
RIP Norm! I was glad to have you as a fellow Arkie!
He came to the Cruisefest in Little Rock every year,and several other shows there also. What an awesome guy!
Never met the man, but I saw his T (in its earlier black-and-blown incarnation), together with Ivo's, at some Armory car show in LA circa 1955. His humorous interpretation of hot rod style influenced the construction of literally thousands of T's over several decades. Virtually none of those copies matched the original for style. A huge inspiration to the hobby.
Met him in Toronto a few years back fun guy RIP Norm
Sad News indeed,R I P Condolences to Family and Freinds,always Admired His Work,Rods,etc .Farewell Norm.

You are going to be missed. RIP
I met Norm four times. Three at car shows and one time at Mistys Steak House in Lincoln, Nebraska. On the latter occasion he invaded our private dinner party and proceeded to entertain our group into the wee hours. We laughed so hard. I'll never forget Norm. I'm glad I had a chance to share a drink with him. I have a signed poster of his Life Magazine picture (circa 1957)on my wall. When I think of our hobby, I think or Norm. He was one of the great ones. R.I.P.
RIP Norm, i met him about 10 years ago at the nationals in Louisville, got to ride around on the back of his truck.

I met him at the EastCoastIndoorNationals in2010. Went to dinner with him what a great time! He had the Fish Truck at the show. Got some pics of him in my coupe. Sat with him while he signed posters for people. We joked like old friends. He was a down to earth guy.It was an honor to meet him. Norm you will be missed.
