Friday’s Feature

My early years with GM were spent in Detroit where I met lots of Hot Rod enthusiasts who shared my interests in 32 Fords. One particular fellow, Larry had a really super 3 window he owned for quite a few years. Larry and I became good friends and we worked on our 3 windows together. Over the years we kept in touch and he built a variety of Deuces. He always keep his cars and his son David and he are completing a very nice sedan. I think he has owned the car for over 20 years and it is finally almost completed. I on the other hand have bought and sold 30 Deuces in that same period and wish I had kept all of them. I received some pictures of the sedan and promised to show you the finished product when completed.

As I have stated many times before, the friends you meet while working on Hot Rods are usually ones that remain friends for a life time. Long distance calls, visits and trips together are what makes this hobby so enjoyable for me and my wife. Thanks Larry, Charlotte and David for the memories.

Have a great weekend.

Stay Tooned!

Larry’s garage behind his big garage. He calls this his shed.

Larry hiding with the always present hat. He works everyday on the cars in his collection. Note the Lobeck frame with SB drilled axle and SO-CAL front brakes. The car also has a Winter’s QC. Larry had to make a whole new floor to clear the QC.

Larry built motor for this sedan and it should be a good strong runner. Note Olds valve covers.

The Moon tank is one of my early trade marks. I purchased a 5 window coupe with a SBC and front mounted Moon tank like Harry Luzader’s famous racer.

David and Larry love the Tri-C tilt column and have them in all of their cars. Nice thin column. The wiring is not finished and will be neat as a pin when completed.

Hook up is simple to the Vega steering on the Lobeck frame.

Larry is wanting a 5 window to add to his collection. Maybe Brookfield will make of these in the future. I like 5 windows too.
