This custom Bucket T was such a hit with the car show crowds that Fresno's Blackie Gejian, the man behind the very successful Fresno Autorama, addit it to his personal collection of exotic custom street rods. Blackie was himself one of the legendary pioneers of the custom car craze that started after WW II. He was a builder and collector as well as a personal friend of the late and legendary George Barris. Blackie showed this custom street rod throughout the country which included several trips to Detroit for the Detroit Autorama which is the most famous in the country.
This car is one of several from Blackie's collection that was auctioned as part of his estate sale.
