Look Inside Rodder’s Journal #72!




Every issue we work to push the proverbial envelope, and for TRJ #72, we took things to a whole new level. How so? For our newsstand cover, we set up a car-mounted camera to capture Don “The Snake” Prudhomme smoking the tires in his freshly restored “Shelby Super Snake” Top Fuel dragster. On the subscriber cover we have an overhead studio shot of Mike Young’s Cad-powered ’33 Ford built by longtime customizer Lee Pratt.


Inside, we have the tale of Wayne Henderson’s timeless Deuce Vicky, a Midwestern ’32 Ford five-window Gasser, a pair of customs from both coasts and a special-edition Super Snake foldout. And that’s just a taste of what’s included in TRJ #72’s 170+ pages. From panel paint to headlight history, this issue has it all.
