You have to be of a certain age to really remember TONY DOW. But those that are the right age, the ring of Tony’s name elicits a warm tone of comfort, security, family values… and CARS.
I’m Fireball and my company is Fireball Publishing. As you may or may not know, we do the World’s Best Automotive Coloring Books. Now, my life being what it is, I get to drive very cool cars, have several SoCal Car Shows, and meet even cooler people.
Tony is one of those folks, and has been a very good friend for quite some time. Although I was a bit too young to see his show in the ’50s, I got caught up pretty quickly. The show? LEAVE IT TO BEAVER! Tony played older brother to the Beav, as Wally. The older brother we ALL wanted.
But there are some things about Tony that you may not know as he grew up in and through Hollywood. First off, he loved cars and had quite a few interesting things. Many of which are featured in the book. But he’s also now a very famous sculptor and amazing artist.
