“If you can think of something, you can create it”

Unlike many show rods of the 1960s, “The Uncertain-T” was a fully functioning hot rod. Steve learned to weld aluminum so he could make a short boxed aluminum frame. The frame also provided extra cooling via an electric water pump that circulated coolant from the radiator through the frame. The engine was a Hilborn fuel-injected 1957 Buick “Nailhead” engine that he had bored and stroked to 384 cubic inches.

It went on to become a Monogram model kit, tour nationally, win Sweepstakes in every show Steve entered it, and receive a lot of magazine ink. In the 1970s, both Steve and his radical hot rod suddenly disappeared from the face of the earth. Only a few selected people have seen them since, and numerous rumors about the destiny of Steve and his famous show car have surfaced over the years. For more than 40 years, the “Uncertain-T” was considered lost, and Steve was presumed dead. That was until he made a reappearance on Facebook on November 4, 2012… read more >
