    To All Of My Friends Here At The H.A.M.B...

    Here's "THE ROD & CUSTOM DREAM TRUCK SAGA", PT. 1: Okay,you've heard or read about the tragic accident that happened to SPENCE MURRAY'S iconic Rod & Custom Dream Truck. ​

    BUT, this will probably be the very first time that you'll ACTUALLY HEAR Spence tell the story of the October 21, 1958, accident that put this strange-but-true Saga into motion ! ​

    THE CRASH, THE PARTING OUT, THE SALE OF THE BODY, THE SEARCH TO FIND IT AGAIN: It's an incredible story that you'll want to hear more than once and R&C pioneer SPENCE MURRAY is the man who lived it...so, just click-on here to begin one of the most interesting tales in R&C History: http://d10514412.u46.c5.ixwebhosting.com/gpage35.html

    Again, my thanks to all of you for letting me share this piece of our History with you. PART 2, will be coming up next week.

    Toner283, RoadFarmer: Thanks for taking the time to Post !

    Spence has always been one of my R&C Heroes and is a great one to spend time with. He has more stories from that time period to share.

    Toner283:

    In PART 2 of the "R&C DT Saga" in addition to Spence's story, I've ALSO included an Interview that I did with GEORGE BARRIS and you'll hear him add his feelings about the Dream Truck after he saw it when Spence had it trailered back to the Barris Shop after the wreck !

    Just being able to HEAR these Legends piece together the History of this unique vehicle is remarkable !

    the other me, 1badnov, madwagon56:

    Appreciate your kind words !

    To All: If you ever get a chance to meet Spence don't pass it up ! He's modest about his accomplishments, but without him, and his peers in the Publishing Industry, we might NEVER have had the early documentation of those fantastic Rods, Customs, Dragsters, Gassers, et al, that we consider "Historic" today.

    His Oral History documentation of the "R&C Dream Truck", its Origins, the Crash, the Search, and, the Restoration, are remarkable to hear after all of these years !
