The new TRJ #79 is here! Not only is it loaded with the best traditional hot rods, customs and racecars from across the country, it’s also our second issue printed in the U.S.A. On our special edition “Black on Black” newsstand cover, we showcase Mike Johnston’s Ford-powered ’35 Ford. For the subscribers, we have a pair of ’60s-style Deuces that were built by their owners Don Lindfors and Dave Shuten.
Flipping through the issue’s 160-plus pages, you’ll find everything from a baremetal Deuce phaeton to Sacramento customizing history and a ’60s drag racing pictorial. On top of that, we take an in-depth look at Portland, Oregon’s first hot rod show and we talk hot rod art with Ed Tillrock: the Pencil Specialist. And that’s only scratching the surface.
