Thanks for the great “Gasser” issue of HR Deluxe (May ’18). I have a question about one of the photos in your “Backstage Past” story: I have always thought Grabowski’s rig was Cadillac powered. Have I been wrong all these years?
Bill is referring to a photo in that story of Norm posing with his T-bucket. Our caption said he stretched the frame to “accommodate an Olds V8 boosted by a GMC supercharger.” Olds is wrong, Cadillac is correct. This also gave us a reason to run a couple of photos Bob D’olivo took for the car’s original Oct. ’55 HRM feature to give readers a chance to compare the blower on the car with the blower reader Kroft has. They are definitely similar.
