And Dean Moon was the starter.
Not these Lowe Brothers?:D;)[ATTACH]
I was at the 5 mile when Al Teague came through in the "Flying Brick" on it's 268 mph pass. Yes, I know what a blown fuel roadster sounds like at...
Well sure as hell that won't be me!:mad:
Looks to have a complete valve train. If I were still into T Speedsters I would jump on that RAJO in a hot minute.
That car has some expensive after market pieces on it.
A red '29 RPU. Jerry knew how to build a badass street roadster! :D
You are too kind Tman. A--hole fits him much better. And I am not the only former vendor that feels that way.
From what I can see, the Hidreth Brothers should be damn glad they never got that car upside down! :eek:
Then you haven't been around long enough to remember "Terrible" Ted Gotelli. An original badass!
[ATTACH] Not even close to my favorite scoop. I thought everyone knew my all time favorite scoop is a Red Greth made Speed Sport scoop.
No, it's on the wrong side of the ocean.
What a shame. That Leong car should be out doing cackle shows!
Every gearhead needs to experience the sunrise over Floating Mountain at least once. It is a religious experience you'll never forget.
There is a story on the car in the Jalopy Journal. Been there about 12 years. The complete story on the car was printed in Hop Up Vol. 12 No. 1....

Bones, that is the bike my brother and I built in 1967. It set two 100cc fuel class records in 1969. It then sat, in pieces, for 40 years. In...
Setting a record at Pendine, 2021 121.96!
It's your car now. You can do what you want with it. How much national exposure did the car really have? Do people know who the builder was when...
Yeah Marty, Steve finally built a proper 301" engine for the old hot rod. He's got her setting records again!
Makin' me proud. :)
Steve and Helen at Pendine, 2021. Fastest car at the meet, 121.96.
OK, here's some back up. That is, in fact, Earl Evans himself. The Evans shop was just 3 blocks from our shop in El Monte. Dad and Earl were...
Yes it is. It now lives in Brighton England with Mr. Steve "my razor broke" Hill. And now that he has an engine in it that will live longer than...
To each his own.
When you're talking fuel coupes, there's only one #1...............................................
Thanks FR for the story on Eddie Potter. I knew the car got wadded up, but I never heard how.
I took this photo at Pomona in '59.
