ow that we’re all set up in our new East Coast office, we’re excited to introduce TRJ #81. This issue marks the start of our 25th anniversary celebration, and it’s loaded with rod and custom features from coast to coast and around the globe. On the newsstand cover, we showcase Bob Gratton’s chopped, blown-Olds-powered Deuce five-window at sunset in Florida. For the subscribers, we have a dynamic studio shot of Detroit designer Larry Erickson’s Model A roadster in baremetal.
Inside, you’ll find a carefully curated mix of the best traditional cars and their fascinating backstories. From a Matranga-style ’40 Buick custom and a ’34 Chevy Gasser to the life and times of Australian artist Jimmy B., this issue covers every end of the spectrum. It spans more than 160 pages and is printed with pride in the U.S.A.
