The car was built by Russ and the Emperors in Russ’s 2 car garage for less than most show cars have in clear coat. You can check out a history of the build here Story of the Take Out T Build. This is a period perfect hot rod built the good old fashioned way, at home, by hand and with family and friends. Russ is known for driving his cars HARD as well.
