    Pretty sure if you can find a copy of The Rodder's Journal #49? with the Pete and Jakes cars on the cover, the Super Bell Coupe is also covered in this issue. If you go to youtube and search "Ride to Pleasanton", you will see a two or there minute video of riding in the Super Bell Coupe, flanked by the California Kid and Jack's yellow 34. Jay

    Poli-form had a couple noses but none like the super bell coupe. Poli-form is no longer in business. The phone number listed no longer works. Dick Williams is in an assisted living facility with advanced dementia. As far as I know, all the molds are in a place in Oroville, CA.

    I told him to have Al Bergler copy it. He's lives close by and can definitely do the job!

    Another HotRod History lesson by one of the best Historians I've had the pleasure to know. I could listen to Kevin go on about hotods 'till the cows come home and never get bored. I hope to do a bit of this soon at El Mirage when I see the "Cyclone".

    Here's a few more covers I have done in the last 12 months featuring the Superbell coupe.
    The first one has some friends of mine from Australia who got to meet and spend time with Jim Ewing in ''
    76.

    The way TEN: PUBLISHING is going, particularly with their multi-media efforts, obviously there is no hope for any magazine, let alone bringing back R&C. The writers they have hired lately for Hot Rod need to do more research along with brushing up on history, the editor needs to enforce fact checking and the content follows too much of a formula. “Oh, is this February? It must be the Drag Week issue.”
    Now if they did somehow wise up over there I know who should be the new Art Director - those covers are stellar, particularly the R&C.
    Geoff, I like them all but that R&C cover is superb!

  15. That was one of the coolest cars I saw when to the NSRA Nat's South in Winston-Salem back in'79, I had seen it in print but seeing it in person was a eye opener.

    That car still looks cool but I wonder what it would like like with tall skinny tires front and rear? a little more traditional ---- Moose, are you listening? HRP
