Yeah, it was but I am talking old style torque tube. And it is not that truck, it is a car, every model they put out!

OH CRAP, I got so wrapped up in this I missed that Curtis had said the correct answer!

I'm sorry Curtis, take the floor and ask a question.

In fact, I'll make my guess on this one...

Chevy Styline Sedan? I know they used it as late as '53, maybe through '55.

Edit... wait!

I was just talking with a buddy on the phone and he knows that Buick Riv's had them as late as '58. That's my new answer

Awsome, I've been waiting for this one.

We have a few celebrities that are members of this site and participate often. I don't believe you will be able to Google this.

One of our members has been published in a book of hot rodding stories and pictures. He has about 4 pages and gives a little history on his life. It's a fairly well published book, I have a copy, I was turned onto this book by another member.

This guy posts everyday but ain't the bragging type.

What's the name of the book?

Who's the author? (HR.com name is the same as in the book.)

What page is his story on in the book?

What's the name of his story?

Good luck. If you guys figure this out before I get up in the morning, I am going to be a BIT grumpy...

Hot Rod is part of the title but I don't see Giffords name anywhere.

Hint #2. The members initials are HH. If this doesn't help and doing a little detective work, ask a guy named Mike. Long time members should remember, it is in a post somewhere in the forum, probably 5 years old by now.
