USS Angler

Tom was in the Navy and this is the sub he was on. It is an older fleet boat that saw service in WW2, diesel powered. He supposedly had a nickname of "Tweets" as one of his job was sounding the boatswain's call or pipe on the loudspeaker system.

tom's 32 before it was his!

These pictures were taken in 1956, believe a guy named Don Hudson owned the car at that time. Work was being done on the car at a shop.

A seat I have

This is a 40 year old AEE seat I came across (and bought) and it's perfect!!! Check it out, it even has the part number sticker attached to it. This shows you how good the seats really were. I also found a real AEE king and queen seat (lots of knock offs out there) but its in much worse condition and I will probably have to get it recovered.

The Danbury Mint is proud to introduce the Limited Edition McMullen Roadster, a perfect 1:24 scale replication of Tom McMullen's roadster exactly as it appeared on the cover of Hot Rod.  This brand new replica captures every detail of the stunning '32 Highboy.  Production of this amazing model will take place this year only and this one-of-a-kind tribute to a truly historic hot rod will be gone before you know it!

Tom's house

If you follow the link you can find an ad about the house that Tom had just finished before he died. He and his wife never got to live in it. It is in Buena Vista Colorado. Tom loved old mines and often went out to them in the California desert so he built this house to be like an old mine.

Tom's 32 in 1961

This is Tom's famous 32 in 1961 at Pomona. It is a metalflake green that didn't work out so well.
