    Thanks for the article on Deuce Heavan. Great collection of cars.
     
  5. @bushwacker 57 ... thanks for the lead ... the "DeMartini" name (and the Sunset district of SF) kinda "ring a bell" ... I'll definitely pursue this.

  6. I apologize for reviving this old thread ... but I recently found a color photo of the "BCA 073" Roadster:

    BCA 073 @ Andy's 3rd Annual Picnic - July '69.jpg

    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.




     
  8. Amazing photos. A collection of cars such as this would make for an awesome museum.
     
  9. @MilesM -

    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? :

    The wheels are Parnelli Jones versions of Rebel Wheels. The original Rebel Wheel Co. was around 1965.

    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.
