The Roadster: OCee Ritch and Joe Henning wrote and drew many restyling features during the '50s, none more popular than Building The Roadster, a five-part series in 1955. The ever-evolving idea was to build a Cad-powered, aluminum-bodied, T-style roadster on an A frame, for a dollar a pound ($2,300). The Roadster never went beyond the concept stage, but rodders all over the USA were inspired to build cars based on the series. Jack Leynnwood painted his rendition for the October '55 cover.
