Brian Frederick of Rockville, Connecticut is one out of five original members of the Ty-Rods of Rockville auto club. The club was established in a small garage in Rockville in 1959, and it is still active today. In addition to being a hot rod and drag racing fan, Brian is also a very accomplished striper and letterer.[1] Brian took a lot of photos of hot rods and customs in the 1950s and 1960s, and thanks to the fine crew at New England Speed & Custom this collection has now been digitalized and shared with Kustomrama.
