September 1999 Hot Rod Magazine
Hot Rod Magazine legend Gray Baskerville spent a little time with the boys at Mothers® and just couldn't resist
taking what Mothers® affectionately calls "The '59" out for a photo shoot.
Having been around hot rods for so many years, Baskerville has seen a lot of trends. One of the latest is what he says John Buttera calls
"reachers" - a term for a hot rod that's both practical and dependable - combining an old/new formula of '50s and '60s
station wagons and trucks with modern factory-replacement powertrains. The '59, yet another Mothers® masterpiece built by Gary Turnau,
is what Baskerville calls "A Reet Red Reacher" in his piece from the September 1999 Hot Rod.
Gary transformed a former phone company service vehicle into this long-distance reacher headed for the Hot Rod Power Tour, as well as a trans-Canadian
tour for Canadian Tires stores.
