Age 20, 1956 - Both Tommy and his famous T roadster were in this movie. He was one of the BAD guys, for a big change in roles. In the story, he went to jail for stealing his own roadster. Huh?



They idled his T roadster around so much that they killed the motor, but Tommy got a new one out of the deal. So he built a bigger, better one and ran much faster at the drags. Perfect!



This ended up being a cult movie. Along with such great works of art like The Ghost of Drag Strip Hollow. Do you see now why Tommy moved on to working mostly in TV shows?


editor's note - hey, I loved these old B&W hot rod movies!
