    I remember my grandfather saying he had a 36 (?) Ford convertible and doing a similar "paint job" , only he glued pin-up girl pics all over his car. He said when his father had to borrow the car, he felt like a dirty old man , lol !

    Thanks for all the pics , BTW.

    The roadster was built by Eric Hansson of Scandinavian Street Rods. Look at the wheels, they are bullet copies of the early Hailbrand's , and were designed by Chip Foose. It was and is driven by Ruth Lundring. Eric and Ruth are members of the Rod Rider Racing Team. Eric also has an amazing belly tank, but this year they are just running the roadster, Ruth pulled a new record of 171.215 on a 161.146. If they keep up the good work, Ruth might be the fourth woman in the Dirty Two Club

    Cool pics, thanks for sharing. I need to get back out to El Mirage one of these days. I grew up going out there to ride dirt bikes and dune buggies, and every so often the weekend when I'd be out with my family would be the same weekend as the SCTA events. I spent many times walking through the pits and talking to the racers. Even years later when my own kids were small and I'd take them out there with buddies from work to ride ATC's. But it's been a long time since I've been out, I should make an effort to get out there this year.
