The model T Hot Rod pictured here is a star car. It was driven by “Kookie” in the very popular 1960’s television series “77 Sunset Strip. There have been many look-a-likes produced of the “Lightning Bug” or the “Kookie Kar” over the years,but this is the authentic one. Model T Fords were turned out in huge quantities and remain to this day a popular car to customize as a hot rod. The front tires are traditionally narrower than the rear and are often motorcycle wheels.
