What is it, you ask? Good question—but don’t expect a real logical answer from owner/builder Steve Grimes. If you’re familiar with Steve’s past creations (O’Bannon Roadster Company), then you already know there’s no particular rhyme or reason, as he tends to deviate way off course from the hot rod norm, with each effort resulting in a one-of-a-kind roadster. This time around, he did his thing with a ’27 T—his thing being front-wheel drive (via flipped quick-change), rear steer (via VW rack-and-pinion), and a rear-mounted ’48 Buick straight-eight. Those wheels dwarfing the shrunken roadster are Chevrolet circa 1927.
