Yes, they were all over.  Even someone at my high school had one, in Tulsa nonetheless !   Mild to wild; they are cool little rides.  Think they have faded in popularity as we've all grown older & fatter.  I don't see too many anymore.

The 1969 Riddler winner, good looking hot rod. How many of those could you build with the budget for today's Riddler entrants? Drag racing kinda has a Riddler award too, it's the Hemi Shootout for '68 'cuda and Dart Hemi cars. $15,000 to win, all you need is a $250,000+ race car. Well at least you get a trophy and custom jacket too, but somehow I fail to see the point. I guess I'm just an old crank. And stay off my lawn!

Chrome,Paint,Mags,Quickchange etc.

The Von T, built by Bill Von Esser in the mid '60's. Von Esser ran a speed shop for years on Chicago's North side, maybe the earliest in town. The car still exists today and looks pretty much like it was built, I don't go to local shows or cruise-ins but I think a relative might own it today. Bill also had an Offy powered Midget that his nephew has beautifully restored.

Well that is enlightening, Jimmy Cimmer (pronounced Zimmer) is the guy that owns the Offy powered Midget, but I never knew he also owned the T at one time. Jim was a long time drag racer and operated a garage doing general repairs and performance work so I guess you might say he followed his uncle into the business.
Say Beppie, I think you should track down a couple of those Hollywood Mufflers for the 3 window. Seriously though, what the heck is a Hollywood Muffler, a glass pack?

You're right, that is Jim Nelson in that snappy sweater and Dode Martin is sitting in the T in the back. Hard to tell on my phone, but if the red one has a torsion bar front end that's a Dragmaster kit too.

The red '27 was a Car Craft project car. I have to pick up a motor in the next town over tomorrow, but if I can find the time, I will try to find the Car Craft it was in and see if it was a Dragmaster as well.

Heres some pics from when it was in Oregon, right after it was built. Later, after he moved to CA, he put the fake 4-71 on it and that's when it was in the front row of the famous R&C Early Times group photo shoot, beside Bob Darrahs '32. Lurker Mick on here owned it for a while after that.

Period magazine photo of another local T. This car is a total late sixties time capsule, it is currently sitting in the original builders basement shop, in the same state you see it here. Probably one of the best preserved, most intact late sixties hot rods in North America. Still has the same 375hp 396 with Edelbrock ram log on it too. Paint is dusty but well preserved, same wheels, same tires, everything. I was lucky enough to get a tour a couple years ago. Two unbuilt steel full-fendered '34 roadsters, and a unbuilt steel '36 roadster there too. 29bowtie, have you had "the tour" at Jims place? Pretty jaw dropping.

Funny story I heard about Jim just the other day. Buddy of mine was a member of a local street rod club along with Jim. The club shall remain nameless to protect my "sources" identity. They had organized a rod run and show, and decided that the club members shouldn't enter the Streetkhana, because it could create problems if a club member won. So moved and agreed. So the day of the show rolls around, and Jim enters the Streetkhana in the pictured T, and as usual, won. I wont say what happened afterwards, I'll just leave it at that! Needless to say, Jim was a little unpopular that day! ;D

Another local sixties T-bucket, this one was restored by the original owners son. It is sort of the fraternal twin brother to Gary Langs old car, they were both built more or less concurrently, and it has a bunch of Gary Lang cast parts on it. It was parked nose to nose with Garys car at ocean park last year.

Heres the frame I picked up today, I am going to re-work the front spring mount/crossmember and the rear spring mounts. Hell by the time I have done that, I was probably no further ahead than just buying a stick of 1.5x3. ;D
Its not bad though, the welds are maybe not beautiful, but good, and its dead square, Its currently 94" WB, but the spring mounts are positioned to go right on top of the rear end housing, I cant get the rear ride height I want with that set-up, with the rear springs on top of the axle and the front spring mount with a spring-over, this thing would sit like a 4x4. I want to mount the coils behind the rear axle.

That intake manifold is a rare item. I can't recall the details or maker but it used three carbs of one style and one lone 97. Seems like it had something to do with the firing order, or so the guy that designed it said. Anybody know about it?

'63 Corvair tail-lights, these are what I plan to use on mine. This car is glass, mine is steel, the stock tailgate hinges wont work with these, so I will have to sort that out. I would kind of like to use chains and hooks on my tailgate with upholstery sleeves over them, but I am not sure how that will look without the stock hinges.
