    What a great coincidence I just saved this photo last night not knowing who it was. Now from Pat's article we know the rest of the story. :)

  3. Great article by Pat, I know he says he wont do any more books but with his vast archive I wish he would.

    This photo from my collection, some may disagree but I believe it is the Doane Spencer '32 when Jack Dorn was still the owner, filled grille shell and cowl. Same '36 Chevy headlights as full fendered version and some random Doane bloke leaning on the car. Guy in leather Jacket looks like Jack Dorn. '35 wire wheels indicate pre-war, war time era.

    That weird drop axle in one of the photos still exist under Don Orosco's '32 roadster with the Riley ohv heads topped Flathead v8. Featured in one of the last Mort era Hop Ups.
