That's Bud (bending over) assisting Jerry Kugel during the brake test portion of "Duel of Deuces" as they measured 44 feet of skid marks left by Gray Baskerville's Lincoln drums that he locked up, compared to Jerry's four wheel discs at 15 feet. "They still talk about that article today," said Jerry (a fun re-read) of the story that appeared in R&C's Aug. '72 issue. Gray's and Jerry's roadsters were daily drivers; moreover, Jerry's black beauty was his only source of transportation for many years. Call it a rod test where Gray and Jerry swapped and compared Gray's gennie-suspended Deuce versus Jerry's state-of-the-art "Deuceuar" (as Gray called it) independent Jag ride. Bud Bryan called Kugel's a "mod rod."
