... and here's scans of the other Kodachrome slides taken at Secrest's garage that day in 1976:
cool. even better in color. when I win the lotto I'm going to do the same thing only with 49 Chevrolets. one of every body style and color.
Looking at the photo of the 32 roadster BCA 073 the houses in the background look like San Francisco off 19th ave there was a guy named DeMartini that a 32 roadster with special wheels never seen it just a guess ?.
Thanks for the article on Deuce Heavan. Great collection of cars.
@bushwacker 57 ... thanks for the lead ... the "DeMartini" name (and the Sunset district of SF) kinda "ring a bell" ... I'll definitely pursue this.
I apologize for reviving this old thread ... but I recently found a color photo of the "BCA 073" Roadster:
NOTE: My father shot this pic (Kodachrome slide) on July 27th 1969 ... at ANDY's 3rd Annual PICNIC ... which was held @ "Turtle Rock Ranch" in Walnut Creek, CA.
Any '60s-'70s Bay Area Hot Rodders remember this car?
I think I have seen these photo's published some where.
Amazing photos. A collection of cars such as this would make for an awesome museum.
That's kinda what I'm hoping to find out ... i.e., the name & date of the publication that these B&W pics of the "BCA 073" Roadster appeared.
Since starting this thread (almost a year & a half ago), I've had numerous conversations with Meadors & several Bay Area Roadster members ... BUT always forget to ask them about this roadster ... Perhaps I need to get one of these gadgets? :
Just a bump of an old thread ... 'cuz I just fixed all the images that were being hosted on Photobucket.
I don't recognize these wheels.
What a great thread !

The wheels are Parnelli Jones versions of Rebel Wheels. The original Rebel Wheel Co. was around 1965.
DANG! I missed this thread the first time, thanks HEMI32......
Thanks they do look good on that roadster don't they, much more of a custom looking wheel than the regular production wheels of that period.
The only wheel that I thought came close to those are Keystones but knew they weren't.
I recall seeing them a time or two but couldn't put a name to a face.
For archival sake ...
Here's the Secrest Collection photos that @KIRK! found in the trash can when he worked at Goodguys:
