An excellent thread about what has to be THE most iconic Hot Rod ever imho.
In Tom`s hands it did it all, from the street to lakes to drags. It was the `60s cover of Hot Rod mag featuring Tom`s roadster that made me buy my first rod magazine back then, at the tender age of 13.
While walking through the LA roadsters show in 2000, I spied this from a distance, and a shiver crept down my spine. Could I be looking at the car that had inspired me to love roadsters for all those years. Some things had changed ......


...... but the evidence was still there.
The headlight mounts, the dropped axle, and that licence plate. I lost count of the amount of times I went back for `just one more look`...
The older I get, the faster I was.

It's been my favorite roadster ever since I saw it on the "Shut Down" album cover as a kid.

Once said "When I grow up I want to be a hot rodder" now I know I can't do both.

Lotsa' stories about Tom, a different kind of guy for sure!
I can relate a few-----But not here.
I often wonder what Tom & Deanna would be like in today's culture?
