60 YEARS AGO

Hot Rod - - Roddin’@random - Dave Wal­lace

July 1958 (92 pages, 35¢): Don John­son’s cover car was the first drag­ster welded to­gether by Kent Fuller, who’s never stopped, by the way. In his 80s, the famed chas­sis-builder com­pleted “cackle” clones of Tommy Ivo’s first rail and Bob Keith’s Cour­tesy Chevro­let Special, along with a state-of-the-art, flat-mo­tored Bon­neville stream­liner for him­self and his son. Also fea­tured in this is­sue’s green-tinted cen­ter sec­tion is Duffy Liv­ing­stone’s road-rac­ing Elim­i­na­tor road­ster, the crude, crowd-pleas­ing, Corvette-pow­ered 1925 T that out­ran Fer­raris and other Euro­pean ex­otics in SCCA and Cal­i­for­nia Sports Car Club meets.
