Flaky Street Roadster! A rare colour photo of the Candy Burgundy Metalflake iteration of Gary Heliker's 1926 Ford Model T roadster taken at the Tridents Rod Custom Autorama indoor car show. This iteration of the car was featured in Rod & Custom May 1962. Two months later it appeared in Hot Rod Magazine July 1962. By then the car had been repainted in a wild Green Metalflake.

Bobby Darrin's Dream Car photographed at one of the Tridents Rod Custom Autorama indoor car shows. The futuristic custom, also known as the Di Dia 150 was designed by clothing designer Andy Di Dia and Bobby Darrin in 1953. It was brought alive by Clarkaiser Custom Shop in Detroit, Michigan. The seven-year build was completed in 1960, and according to Ed Roth, it was this car that gave him the idea for the bubble top on the Beatnik Bandit. Photo courtesy of Steve Arnold.
A photo of Dennis Dodson's mildly restyled 1954 Chevrolet taken circa 1963. Dennis was a Tridents member. Photo courtesy of Steve Arnold.

Steve Arnold was a member of the Tridents of Southern California from 1969 to 1972. Steve's photo collection consists of old Tridents photos.
