This is not a Hollywood blog. Most celebrities can go pound salt, for all we care. However, we will make an exception to not only note that Clint Eastwood turns 81 today, but that his first car – as seen on Darren Allison’s Clint Eastwood Archive – was a Model T-based flathead-powered lakes modified that his father bought for him for $25. Darren said he doesn’t know much more about the modified than what we see in the photo, but we know that Eastwood took shop classes at Oakland Technical High School and often rebuilt engines (and all he had on his mind then were “fast cars and easy women”), so we have to wonder whether he ever raced it.
