Later this week, the brand new Rodder’s Journal #77 will be shipping to subscribers around the world. On the newsstand cover, we showcase Richard Rawlings’ Hemi-powered ’34 Ford, which he built Fuel Coupe-style with Brian Bass at Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. For the subscribers, we have a baremetal studio shot of the Eddie Dye roadster—a historic ’29 Ford Model A with one of the best streamlined track noses of all time. It’s now owned by New Jersey’s Tom Bobowski and is being restored by the Circle City Hot Rods team.
And that’s only the beginning. Flipping through the 160+ pages, you’ll find everything from an ultra-traditional A-V8 built by Vern Tardel to a collection of early-style customs from Ohio. In addition to a batch of extraordinary car features, we have an in-depth look at the Petersen Publishing archives, a mid-’60s Detroit Autorama photo portfolio and a gallery of ground-scraping customs based on mid-century automobile advertisements.
With a pair of three-page foldouts and traditional hot rod and custom car content from cover to cover, it’s an issue you don’t want to miss. We’ll have a whole lot more about TRJ #77 in the coming weeks, but for now, here’s a sneak peek.
