Steve Scott's Uncertain-T of Reseda, California. Built by Steve in a small family garage, the build was started in 1960 and completed in 1965. He was 17 years when he started the build. The inspiration came from a cartoon that a friend had made in class. In 1964 Junior painted the first version of "The Uncertain-T" in a gorgeous Metalflake Tangerine Orange.

Junior's House of Color, of South Gate, California was owned and operated by Hersh "Junior" Conway. Junior started his automotive career at Barris Kustoms in the Easter of 1955. When George Barris moved Barris Kustoms to Hollywood in late 1961, Junior decided to go on his own and open up his own shop. His first shop was on Eastern in Bell Gardens, then to Lakewood blvd in Bellflower close to where Larry Watson was, then he had two shop on Atlantic blvd, and then one on Century in Lynwood.
