    Thanks for sharing.

    Personally I think some chrome reverse wheels would look good on that one.

    Awesome Hotrod...a little polishing up and a more period set of rolling stock and Stogy would be good to go...thanks for sharing @J.Ukrop...did it actually have a former period look with Piecrusts and Cheaters?

    You sure get to see some cool vintage rides...you're quite fortunate...and so are we...;)

  17. That is cool, what year does everyone think it was built?- my guess based on nothing, maybe 1958-1962.

    Cool hot rod. Looks like it was built in the late 60's-early 70's.

    Interesting hot rod Joey, I can’t say I like everything about the way it was built however it’s neat to see it is still around.

    You mentioned writing features, who are you writing for now that The Rodders Journal is gone with the wind for good ?

    It was built in 1961, it featured hubcaps and whitewalls. Last known to be on the road in 1964-65 due to a over heating problem.

    I saw the Wallflower in person at the Affordable Street Rods open house. It is just too kool to see it in person. Its in great hands, the McGregor family will take care of it.

    How many Tug McGraws can there be? But that one died many years ago.
