Now Available - TRJ #62
The subscriber cover of Rodder’s Journal #62 features George Poteet’s 425 Buick-powered ’34 Ford three-window. It’s the latest to roll out of Dave Lane’s FastLane Rod Shop in Donohue, Iowa. The coupe has been sliced, chopped, and tweaked from stem to stern to achieve the perfect proportions Dave’s become known for. And the polished mag-style wheels, Hugger Orange paint, and white-coated headers and exhaust give it a distinctly ’60s vibe. We asked Dave to weigh in and provide some firsthand perspective on the project, and we think you’ll find what he has to say interesting. / By Curt Iseli

We have literally thousands and thousands of images that we have never published in The Rodder’s Journal. Some are outtakes from features, some are from before TRJ was founded back in 1994, and some are historic photos that we have collected over the years. Our intention is to post as many as we can here along with short bits of copy and captions to give some basic information and context. We plan to post these photos in groups in between our normal magazine and book publishing chores. Check back often, as we plan to update this portion of our website frequently.
