FROM STREET RODDER.
Mamie Van Doren chauffeurs Mr. Grabowski in his '24 phaeton. All three appeared in the movie Sex Kittens Go To College. Later, new owner Kay Trapp and Norm Breedlove transformed the tub into a fictional '28 Porter for the TV series My Mother The Car.

Norm Grabowski takes some time during a photo shoot of his Six Pack Chevrolet Corvair-powered motorcycle with Car Craft magazine writer Jack Candall to talk about his projects. Grabowski is a natural in front of the camera and these animated moments are punctuated with humorous anecdotes.Photo's by Eric Rickman
