Jay burning rubber in a museum piece is priceless! Thanks for posting t one up.
Wow. Amazing hot rod. That engine sound is priceless. Curious as to why it wasn’t running air cleaners. Thx for posting.
How could you not love that!!
Really glad to see that that car was saved! I'll post some original info and a photo of the car tonight from an old SCCA magazine. Bob
I saw that car in 77. Used to have the festival catalog that had a picture or 2 of it but I think it's long gone. I thought it was earlier but I was there that year.
It's a shame the owner has no use for my left nut, or that car would be mine. Cum to think of it, I don't have much use for my left nut either.
Quite a car, Quite a story. Thanks to the guys that saved this Hot Rod!!
Great post! Thanks for sharing . I feel a little more “refined” now.
Great HOY ROD!
The car is owned by Mr Blake. While he is not a HAMBer, a guy who works for him is. Nicky Flores is a HAMBer. Nicky was responsible for foiling a car theft of a 34 Ford Sedan Delivery that belongs to Blake. Both are very cool guys
Wow. That's incredible, love it. Thanks for posting.
The shop is a study in WOW!!
Nicky is a great guy and really a pro machinist.
I went by the shop and got the grand tour after swapping a Nailhead for a Y block.
And then pulling up and stopping in the only 30' red curb on the block, classic.
It IS actually a '35 Panel you are referring to that was stolen and recovered....
I saw this car at Barrett-Jackson in the 90's and it was mind boggling to see a Duesy engine in a hot rod. The joke around it was how would you ever sell a hot rod with a $200,000 or $300,000 hundred thousand dollar motor.
That guy made the four carbs sing in harmony, sounds awesome.
What front brakes are those?
And what rear end is in it?
There was a large picture that hung for many years in the main office hallway of the Bendix/AS/Bosch APG, formerly the Studebaker Proving Grounds. It was taken at the oval track entrance during some kind of sports car event, but one car stood out from the rest. It was an elevated rear view of a '33-'34 Ford roadster with a large ohc engine in an elongated engine compartment. Always wondered about that 'hot rod" running with upscale foreign sports cars every time I passed it, and now I know.
Hey bud! Long time no chat... That be my fault....
How the hell are ya????
I stand corrected
THANKS FOR POSTING, Dave AND JAY
no problem hrm2k !!!
Glad I did a search, but quite was certain someone would have posted it. This car is truly awesome and these men are coni suers of the marque’
About 25 years ago, I remember seeing a Duesenberg engine for sale, in Hemmings for $100,000. I just about fell off my bar stool.

Neat car with a great history!
Thanks for posting, made my day! Love them Duesenburg!
All I can say is WOW that's a true Hot Rod !
Great video even though there is redundancy in the details told in the car going down the road and on the sidewalk interview. Is it me or does the glass in the windshield seem odd in that it doesn't appear to curve at the bottom corners just goers straight across? Not that that would prevent me from taking a ride in It!
love his casual way of motoring.
Somehow its nice to know a '37 Cad LaSalle transmission is at home behind a Duesenberg.
