Yeah, I'd have to say this one. Grandpa always had some cool car around, so ALL old cars were "normal" in our family, but CadZZilla? Yeah, that was the stuff.
I STILL have my poster, somewhere....

I love The Defibrillator. The two guys that teamed to build it, Bob Biehler and Larry Foss, deserve great respect for their artistic talents and as just plain good guys!

"sleep at violet springs" Good plug and the only decal I'm running. (Hot Rod) from age 4 on to this very day.
I don't even know what year the car was and it was already rotting into the ground at my Grandparents camp in New England when I was 5 or 6. It was a Stutz Bear Cat Roadster. I can still remember sitting behind that round glass drivers windshield cranking on the wheel and pulling on leavers thinking I was the fastest driver in the world.

Sy Gregorich's 55 Crown Victoria & the Dodge Deora. Both cars built by the incomperable Alexander Brothers.
Born in So. Cal in the early 40's. I grew up with many of the cars listed, either on the street or on the strip. most of the impressions were never famous. but Ivo's T on the cover of Hot Rod aug 1957 hit me real good.
lot of famous shops in the area built some bad ass cars that never hit a magazine.
The single car that ruined me for life was Bob Porters 32 3-window. after Bob got it from Doyle Gammel he turned that duece into the baddest driver on the street. it was 365 day a year sole transportation. L88 big block 4 speed vette rear end. ran mid 120's in street trim. even used it as TOW CAR for his race car.
I spent time behind the wheel and have never thought of owning any other Duece in the world
A local car for me .........Pure Hell
Keith Weezner's shoe box. I have been addicted to these cars since I first saw his in print.

I was blown away by the attention to detail. It was the first time I saw what a car build could be. The Hot Rod cover is the only picture I could find.

Lil John's T sedan. Built the model as a 12 yr old, then got a ride in it at 75' Memphis nationals at 13. Didn't get any better for a kid! For those younger than I, that would be John Buttera.
