Dick Page of Tacoma, Washington. Dick's first car was a Model A Ford coupe that he bought for 85 dollars. He drove it home and tore it up. The top was chopped, the body channeled over the frame and a Pontiac V-8 installed along with other modifications. The build was never completed, and Dick parted it out after he had gone for a ride in a deuce hot rod.


During high school, Dick was a member of the Tacoma Drag-Ons. In 1960, noted customizer Darrel Christenson taught Dick how to paint. In the early 1960s, Dick helped Louie Chaves show the Jade Idol and the Solar Scene. In about 1964 Dick joined his friends of the Tacoma Capers club instead. He was a Capers member until he joined the Tacoma Toppers. Later on he became a member of L.A. Roadsters.


Dick wrote for Tex Smith for a while.
