This '57 gasser has been on the Des Moines scene since '68 or '69 when it was built. The original builder is still around, but now his Son is the car's caretaker. There were times when Mom said "get that car back on the ground where it belongs". Dad steadfastly stayed his ground and said " Gassers are gonna make a comeback, mark my words". And then they did. It's obviously a show car interpretation of what a race car is, but that doesn't stop it from being cool as sh**. Tons of chromed and polished pieces, a tilt front end, and a period correct interior to die for. That console and shifter were one or two years old when it was built. Nice work outta you, Bud.
