Sometimes you just get an idea in your head and come hell or high water you’re going to execute it. The idea may not be well thought out and it may not even be practical, but at the end of the day what great things ever came from playing it safe. Take this wicked 1927 Ford Model T Roadster for example, it was built by Gordon Tronson of Henderson, Nevada in an unbelievably quick 6-month time period. Tronson is originally from New Zealand and has a history of building and racing funny cars, so when the idea for Double-Trouble popped into his head one day, he knew he just had to build it.
There were no plans to speak of, just an idea and a man who knew he could get the job done. The chassis is constructed of 1.5-inch tubing that was all manually bent by Gordon himself. The body is a fiberglass unit coated in candy apple blue paint and the engines, those glorious twin engines, are aluminum Ford 4.6-liter modular V8s with custom made supercharger manifolds and B&M Teflon superchargers. Output is said to be in the 1000 hp range. Just about every part on this car was crafted by Mr. Tronson to create a true, one-of-a-kind fire breathing hot rod that is simply awesome. Oh… and yes, it does run.
