Yep, the Boys in South San Fran are building a new one as we speak.
Junior got it goin' on...
I believe this was also one of Jeff Beck's dueces, on loan to George Harrison for the photo shoot.

I don't think Danny owned either of the above cars but this was one of his projects at the time of his death.
Brian setters 32 sold on eBay last year. If I remember right It went really cheap for what it is.
If you're not familiar with Danny Gatton, here's a story of his obsession with cars and guitars.
As for his '56 "Unfinished Business" Crown Vic, the car seemed to be in good hands and in nearly completed condition in Elko, Nevada in 2007. But I haven't come across anything more online about it's more current whereabouts.
The (Barris customized) Ringo Starr 57 Chevy, given away by Craig stereo in 1978 is still around. (I remember seeing the ad in High School and entering the contest) It recently sold at a Mecum auction.
Ray Evernham did the resto on the Plymouth, the story was on one of his TV shows. Gary
John Bonham's "Andy's T" C Cab was recently listed.
A local boy, lived across the river from me. I never met him but I knew one of his band members. Billy Hancock was quite good himself and still tours to this day. He helped me wrench on my car on his way to a gig. All of them were into cars at one time or another.
Steve Bonge (currently president of the NYC HAMC) acquired the Model A coupe from Brian Setzer (they are both from Long Island), probably in the early 90s. The Muncie from the coupe was one of the last gearboxes Paul from 5Speeds.com rebuilt on Long Island before moving to Florida.
The coupe was black with traditional flames, the same as Bonge's Harley and 50s Olds, so I was surprised when Steve said he was repainting it purple; but he is also a Beatnick so maybe that explains the purple. I don't know if the car was ever put back together, or if Bonge still owns it.
Roy Brizio one off 4dr Victoria for Eric
The Marty Robbins car was done on an episode of Americarna. As mentioned above. That was Ray's show.
As a kid spinning my Dad's LPs, I often wondered what happened to these two...
Found the T-bucket - https://www.tbucketplans.com/fred-steele-roadster-ventures-in-space/
No luck with the other one.
Mostly a throw away reply but for those of us who were in our late teens at this time, Craig was a huge name in stereo. LOL. If you had a Craig, you were doing OK........the thing I find odd here, is that they put an 8 track in the car. Cassette was more state of the art at the time and you would have thought that they would have went with that.
Rick Danko's Hudson. There is a car I would love to own.
That's the Tom Mcmullen and Ian Cusey Roadsters.
Incredible story of unearthing the Cusey Roadster;
Another great Junior Brown album;
I believe the Tony Nancy 22jr car is in the Speedway Motors Museum. No clue about the T bucket from the Ventures album.
Ol Slowhand has quite a few hotrods, probably more than I can post.
Even Cher got into the picture.
And not a coupe in sight!
I believe this thread will be around awhile. We all wonder where they are now.
It is! I just saw it in September.
The T was owned at the time by Fred Steele when he was a member of the L.A. roadsters. It is back in Massachusetts and shows up occasionally at the Ty-rods event in September. Snowman
The dragster on Dick Dale's 'Mr. Eliminator' is Tony Nancy's 22 JR.
Anybody know where it is?
