Jeff, cool video. Don't recall ever seeing that one before. It was good to hear Reds/Henrys voice again. The '36 Pheaton you saw in 2010 is more than likely the same one I saw and took these pictures of at Carpenters museum last Tuesday. He also uses pictures of this car in his catalogs, sales ads, and on posters. I'm betting it could hold its own on that race track.

Sorry you could not make it Tom. Are you thinking about coming to Brainerd? Several of us from RG36 are planning to be there.

JOHN ..........................................
Thanks so much for uploading and posting so many photos ! Your efforts are certainly appreciated !
I drove my '34 Phaeton, from West Virginia, to the Charlotte National Meet in 1975. I won the "BEST OILED" trophy ! It is a FORD script oil can and bracket, mounted on a plaque, with the Charlotte meet medallion attached. It is, still proudly, hanging on my living room wall.
I remember going a little high on the wall, at the Speedway, and feeling the rear end starting to slide downwards. They wouldn't let us go fast enough to go any higher.
I do remember them letting a couple "hot" cars, hit it hard.
Wish I could have been there, this year.

Thanks. Now I remember. He sold someone (2) 81 Strombergs that did not match for big money. The guy was not happy about the non matching carb wanted his money back. Ken did want make it right. I believe the guy did get his money back after going thru a lot BS. Ken was not very happy. Poor Ken looks hot. Someone should give him glass of cold water. Business looks slow.
