    NOTE: This roadster was originally built by Paul Harris in 1948 ... It ran at Bonneville in '50 (went 131.19 mph before breaking a rear axle) ... held the closed course speed record at the San Jose Speedway in '51:

    ... and was the “Competition Sweepstakes” winner at the '61 Oakland Roadster Show.

    @HEMI32 Any photos of Jim Gomes' out of Fremont cars? I am married to his niece and like to blow his mind on the HAMB when I show him pics from the past!
     
  5. Yes ... I’ve got dozens of pics of GOMER’s cars ... but none at the ‘73 LODI event :(

    That stated, stay tuned ... because I’m thinking about expanding this thread to cover the ‘74 & ‘75 LODI events.

    P.S.: Next time you see Jim, tell ‘em Todd (Bruce’s “kid”) says Hi!

  7. As mentioned earlier in this thread, the LODI '74 (2nd Annual West Coast Street Rod Mini-Nats) event was hosted by the Northern California Street Rod Association (NCSRA) ... with Gary Meadors as the Event Director and several others (including my father) helping to coordinate the event.

    Here's the event program:

    NOTE: Ed (@plywude) Lee's '33 Aussie Phaeton was a silver-blue with black fenders & beltline in '73 (see post #5) ... but by '74 he had re-painted it red with black fenders & beltline.
