  7. Terri @Born a HotRodGal Hollenbeck -

    It's great to see you posting on the H.A.M.B. again!

    Thanks for starting this thread!

    Back in late September (when Beppie @ts3x65mph Pistone first made mentioned of this "eBay find"), I contemplated starting a thread on the H.A.M.B. to find more pics of (& info about) Lance Miller's "LEASEMOBILE" ... but wasn't sure a car built in the late '60s would be well received here.

    I guess I was wrong about this place ... considering this thread is now a so-called "Featured Thread" with well over 2100 views and nothing but positive comments.

    Please keep us updated on Darryl @hollenbeck32's progress!

    It has - thankfully - slipped through the crack, same as your fantastic Andy's Picnic threads, with plenty of '70s shots.
    Thank you Mark @Moriarity and @Ryan for exercising your impeccable good editing taste, as per usual. The spirit of the thing, and all that, along with homage to the Brizio family.​

    Congrats on getting the T!
    Please say you're going to put some American spokes and Ansen Sprints back on it! :)
    That would be the icing on the cake. :D

  21. Fear not folks. It's getting the 6-71 Cragar blower back on it too. At least that is what Darryl told me when I sold him a Cragar tri-plate for it. So cool. I love these paint jobs.

  26. Terri @Born a HotRodGal & Darryl @hollenbeck32 have been busy working on the "LeaseMobile" Instant T (built in 1968 by Terri's father, Andy Brizio) ... and have graciously allowed me to keep you up-to-date with their progress.

    First up ... Dave Shuten provided some much needed and hard-to-find "restoration" parts ... CRAGER blower parts ... and a pair of 11.90-15 GOODYEAR BLUE STREAK tires for those ANSEN Sprint wheels:
