Earl's Bare Bones Hot Rod Model A Tub

Post by Reb Stew on October 11th 2015, 3:28 pm

I was told about these parts a month ago. Price was too high for what it sounded like he had. He took them to the Pumpkin Run and no one grabbed them. Earl and I looked them over there but passed. Sometimes you can't see the tree for the forest. After some talk between Earl and I I grabbed the guy business card and gave him a call. Price then went in the right direction so we drove over and spend 5 minutes loading it and over 2 hours listening to stories and looking at some other stuff he had. This stuff would never had made a good car but for a home made tub with a fast engine it will work great. Friday Earl bought the mix match Model A body parts that 3 different cars gave up what was left of their life to start a stripped down, bare bones, Model A tub. Just something to scare everyone it comes into contact with. Saturday was spent cutting, grinding and welding the tub together.

Earl and I went up into Ohio to hang out a bit with Benny( Blue Eyed Devil ). He showed us around the shop and Earl got to see some cool stuff. It's nice to be around like minded guys when you are as young as Earl and first starting out. It made an impact on Earl to say the very least. He had a smile on his face all the way back home and kept talking about it. Benny set Earl up with a bunch of goodies for his tub. I think he was a little in shock trying to figure it all out. All I can say is this is hot rodding and brotherhood at it's best. Besides seeing what all this is really about he came back loaded up with a grille shell, the front end he needed and a nice frame that will work out well.

Mild built 350 I think. Something fast, will do a burnout enough to get you tossed in jail but still be able to drive it to Texas if he wanted.
