    I think if I were picking for myself I'd have to take Frank Coon's '32. Wonder what the filled heads meant? Any idea???

    On the next page the WEIAND-Van Maaanen roadster is so awesome and impossible to tell from the pics but I believe that car was painted BRIGHT GOLD and had chrome disk wheels. I think it can be seen on pg. 75 of the Birth Of Hot Rodding book. One of my favorites!!! Anybody confirm this?

    I gotta get this book. There's a lot of info and imagery that I'd like to reference. Did Russetta ever put out anything this early? I know a lot of guys build coupes in a post war style lately and I was kinda wondering if there was a reference to look at like Veda's.

    There was a book of the California Timing News that was put out on issues from May of 46 Vol1 #1 into April of 48 vol 2 #24. Really great book (328 pages). This was put together from the Dick Martin collection.

    Here's some info on the book. There is a contact address on the inside of the book. It came as a sort of spiral bound book and is probably over an inch thick.

    The guys who competed at the Russetta meets were racers who belonged to the member clubs. Although many of them went on to successes in the racing or speed equipment "world", no one put together a book about the Russetta Timing Assn. The R.T.A. was organized in 1948 and ran until the start of the 1960s when it was melted into the SCTA. Prior to 1948 Russetta meets were run as a open lakes meets where anyone who paid a small fee could get timed.
    It would not have been profitable to publish a book on the R.T.A. back then. The only available info is in old magazines, newspapers and programs. Veda's publications were what you call a "labor of love".

    I think it's interesting that VEDA has a generator mount on the head, but no generator.....

    Any more info on the "filled heads" mod? That's a new one to me. Any pics of the Weiand car from other angles? I'm not sure what I'm looking at with regard to the bumper halves (?) in front of the rear tires.
