    The Ts with turtle decks are my favorite but, I may be biased.

    Here is another one with the cardboard roof "Extension" must have been a "Thing" back then for chopped cars. :)

    LB a very hard running Canadian altered from the Toronto area. The Percy Also/Karbelt machine was not only quick but show worthy.

    Mike and Steve had a few cars over the years, including car's built in the last few years. They knew how to layout and build a car with the Fiat body like few could.

    Here's one more for the fun of it. Looks like Irwindale Raceway. Larry Sutton (black hat) and Steve____ (curly red hair) (forgot his last name) on the starting line.

  15. I've seen that car before, and I still don't understand the need for the roll bar outside the top??

    The front axle sure looks "dainty".

  20. I guess the axle goes with the square tube frame.

    Show and Go...;)...So odd looking it's cool and it certainly was a well built very clean machine...I wonder if the outer bar actually pinned into the inner cage?

  23. I wonder if this is the same car? There are some different features, like painted roll bar vs chrome. 1933 fuel coupe, #300 rear.jpg

    I normally don't like "street" Fiats, but that's actually kinda cool.

  30. I’m looking for the car! I was told it went to Detroit after I sold it. It may have been lengthened with disc brakes on the front. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
