Friends from Georgia and Germany Stop by the Shop!

We usually see an increase in hot rodders visiting our shop when nearby car shows, such as the Shades of the Past, are going on. Last week, a couple of very cool hot rods paid us a visit as they headed to Pigeon Forge for the weekend. Motivating north from Lithonia, Georgia, Tom Lawson piloted the ’33 Ford pickup, which has a low and lean profile, thanks to a chopped top and a great stance. The pickup is powered by a ZZ4 crate engine and 700R-4 transmission. Behind the wheel of the slick ’32 Ford roadster is Tom’s great friend Armin Grutschus from Munchhausen, Germany. The Deuce roadster features a 408ci Ford engine, backed by a five-speed manual transmission. The tires and wheels came from our neighbors at Coker Tire. Great hot rods, cool owners, and a very enjoyable road trip. Check ’em out!

    Thanks for the comment and photos. It is always a pleasure to stop by your place and see all your new projects plus shop around the great display of parts in the Speed Shop.
    Last but not least, seeing old friends! I know most of you guys from the Great Race.
    Tommy & Elsie Lawson
