Running Greers rear wheels in those pictures.Ron moved to Wairoa in the 70's where the T was sold and eventually destroyed I believe - Sad end to a nice Bucket. I was recently asked for pics by Rons son - do have a few.

I'd have to agree with that - Always liked the 34's and that was a nice one.

Whose brown/copper roadster is that at the end of the row the '34 is in?

Gearing's gold Cad powered A roadster
