John Hyde's 1957 Ford
1957 Ford owned by Drivin Deuces of Carlstadt member John Hyde. Fellow Drivin Deuces member Don Blake extended the quarters on Hyde's Ford, installing custom taillights and lucite lenses. Don told Ray Soff they performed the work in the rain. "John held the umbrella while Don leaded." He also told how John's father, who was a bus driver, slammed on the brakes in front of his house, jumped out and started waving his arms and screaming at the boys for "wrecking a brand-new car!" as they were installing the 1958 Chevrolet Impala roof vent. They both ran in the house scared!
