The "Kenford"

In front of the passenger's seat is one of the Kenford's more intriguing features -- a brass-topped tube with "Tube Le Dump" engraved on it. This tube is a beer can ejector designed by Dutch for a '66 Olds Toronado he used to drive. The tube leads to the road below, so Von Dutch could get rid of empties without having to toss them out the window while driving.

I love this guy. An early American hot-rodder and pin-striper par-excellence. Forget those crap T-shirts getting around now with Dutch's name on them. He would have hated that. Go to this great site of Bob Burns for the real McCoy - go von dutch
