Stogy, It really is a unreal experience to be entrusted with this trophy that’s near 3/4 of a century in existence. Not sure about the tonque. I think about how this all came about over 21yrs ago when 1st seeing that roadster body on saw horses in A friend’s backyard. What I original thought about this is that Caroline (who was the owner @ that time and I’m still in touch with), was going to build a cool little street rod. Heaven knows that they had all of the parts..... Fate just kinda stepped in here. She saw my initial enthusiasm for her project and realized that perhaps I should take this project on. This body was no different than most by having a little rust in spots.... but what I really saw was a very “Uniquely modified” body that surely had a story to tell, (I just didn’t know what,when,where & how?) In the beginning of this thread I tell how I found out who had it, how many years it took to contact the Waske’s, & then the 3 month thrash to get it under its own power with help from “THE VERY BEST HOT RODDERS IN THE WORLD) aka HAMB Brothers!!!!! I was looking forward to T-W Pismo as that’s what we were doing at time (BEST DAMN HOT ROD EVENT EVER!) The W.E. was nearly a runner, but there was a event that happened in my life that has continued to effect us into the present. I did get that 70 yr. anniversary of when the only images that I had found of the car on the lakes run done, so much so that Elmer who was probably there that same time/place even got a ride.,(mind you, the brakes weren’t hooked up yet)...... it was fun though...... Doc loves that fact that this car exists. I’m glad that I can call him “FAMILY “. He was a little bitty boy when he last had been in that car, his dad always wondered if it was now a Toyota or a Datsun now???? I’m happy to say Clem that the main part of your & Rae’s steed is still in the corral and able to Gallop when bridled. (Doc’s Mom loved horses). We continue on with it, little work at a time so hopefully someday I’ll get it the point where people will appreciate its existence. I sure do. .
