Hot Rod Jack's Supercoupe
RARE !Only 1100 REAL Supercoupes were made.The rest were bogus dealer option packages,with automatics,15 inch wheels, and low boost superchargers.
Supercharged,air-to-water intercooled,5 speed,leather Recaro racing seats,and Z rated tires for sustained speeds over 125.All from the factory.Not a 50's rod,but it sure made one hell of a grocery getter!
This was Ron's old UPTOWN EXPRESS road rocket
when it was white,now it's
Hot Rod Jack's
NEWS FLASH! As of March it's 
been changed again-now
it's a convertible!Damn that Jack!

John's '58 Rancho
RUMBLERS  N.Y.C.
I'm originally from Brooklyn,and I
can tell you - We had rods,bobbers,
and Kustoms as far back as I can
remember,way back before I saw
my first little 25 cent california
magazine in 1953,and I'm an old bastard!
East coast rods always looked better to me.
They were channelled.Left coasters did hi-boys.
The RUMBLERS ain't doing anything new,
BUT THEY'RE KEEPIN' IT ALIVE,
& DOIN' IT RIGHT !!!!
Give it up for Brooklyn and Roger Miret!

to Florida. Was I surprised when I saw
this in last month's Old Skool Rods!
