    Check my avatar. That was a Vallejo car in 1958 (Red Lund) before it went to Napa and still there.

    That's really cool.

    Bump for Brewsir or Gunnar.
     
  6. That is pretty damn cool.
     
  7. What a great trophy to be kept since 1958!

    I have a Swanx program from their first show in 1957.

    now that is extra rad!
     
  9. Gomes that is so radical! Would be killer to get a few of the ol'guys to one your bbqs and get em to tell some stories eh!

    About 15 years ago we re-surrected a 50s hot rod club from our area too and have met a couple of the original members. We even got an original jacket.
    Knowing some history in a club rules!

    Gomes,
    Nice trophy, would it be for sale? We have had the SWANX Vallejo chapter up and running since 1998 and that trophy would be a nice addition to our club history. We will be attending an Oakland Swanx chapter reunion next weekend (our parent chapter) and this would be a nice piece to to bring along for show and tell. Please let me know.

    Lurker Mick,
    Is that show program for sale, or is it possible to get a good color a copy??
    PM me and let me know.
    Thank You -Gunar

    Hey Tony, I just wanted to thanks again for the use of the trophy. It brought quite a few smiles and warmed a few hearts.
