Norm Grabowski and his unique skull shifters and other hand carved oddities have been the centerpiece of this site since it’s inception in 1995. I spent the next 17 years visiting with Norm and collecting pictures of his normskulls for fun and documentation. Norm was an entertainer, who always held court and made sure everyone had a great time. It was an honor to sit at the table and break bread, drink, and drink and drinks more. The article below comes from the archives of Hot Rod magazine. sit back and enjoy the read.

Norm Grabowski was a well known entertainer and woodcarver, but he’s best known to us as the hot rodder who created one of the most famous hot rods in history.
