Tub Con­fu­sion

Hot Rod Deluxe - - Scrapbook -

Had Dave Wal­lace read the Jan. 2019 is­sue, he wouldn’t have mis­taken Tom Hynes’ ’23 T tub (that ap­peared in Girls Town) for Norm Grabowski’s ’24 tub that he ended up sell­ing to Kaye Trapp [“Back­stage Past, Part 6”], who af­ter us­ing it as a push car for the Zeuschel, Fuller, and Moody drag­ster, fur­ther cus­tom­ized it into a fic­tional ’28 Porter for the My Mother the Car TV se­ries.

Just giv­ing Dave a gen­tle rib­bing. I didn’t know it wasn’t Grabowski’s tub, ei­ther, un­til I read your ar­ti­cle. Con­grats on an­other great is­sue.

At­tached is a photo of my in-progress 1960-is­sue AMT Tro­phy Se­ries ’32 Ford five-win­dow coupe box art replica. It’s built from all vin­tage parts and old school, in­clud­ing sewing thread plug wires.
