Rod is an ole buddy of mine from years ago. He and I met at the Hershey, Pa. World of Wheels back in 78 or 79. I was showing a 77 Datsun minitruck and he had his then ground breaking 32 Pro-streeted Ford coupe. This video is a little lengthy, but gives you a good idea of what a true 6 second street car looks like. Although Rod has built some serious show type cars(they all drive), he has a long history in some stock class drag racing. More recently and importantly he has held the fastest street car title several times. Check out the other videos over at his YouTube site!!!

All his stuff has been just bitchin! I still have a magazine pic (the one with the cop and the radar gun) of his first(?) black 63 pro street Corvette here in my office. The more recent blue 63 with the late model LS6 in it is equally bitchin! Keep ‘em comin Rod, we luv ‘em!

Very cool video Doug. It took me a minute to figure out who you were. I didn’t realize that you were a drag race guy…..the Olds convertible doesn’t lend itself to that kind of thought…........
I’ve met rod several times…......his stuff rocks no doubt. I think my favorite is still his 53 vette

I’m not Rod…He happens to be a friend of mine….so I thought I’d toss up his vid. And what could you mean by “that”. Drop me a PM, I’m curious!!

Oh, now I understand. I look at Rod as someone who is like an untouchable. You know too big and busy for the little guy.

Nothing could be further from the truth. What many don’t know is that he is a small business man that works his ass off in his small sheet metal roofing company, one employee, himself. He is always willing to talk to anyone. Admittedly, there always seems to be a lot of folks around him, and getting his attention is tough, but once you get it he is a great guy to hang with!!!
