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!
