    We have been following the Vulcan’s Car Club 32 Vicky sedan since the early days at Lion’s Dragstrip.

    When we first went to Lions, that car was one of the nicest ones racing on those days. Of course, it was sponsored by our favorite, neighborhood speed shop owner, Joe Mailliard. This speed shop had its hands in a lot of race cars that we saw at Lions. It was good business competition between Reath Automotive, Mickey Thompson, and Joe Mailliard.

    From the early stages of a cool looking stance on the 32 Vicky, it progressed from fast to faster with specific upgrades, maintaining the wonderful Purple color during the progression.

    Back in early 2012, Hot Rod Mag did an article on a different version of the 32 Vicky. Changed from the original, but still the overall look was still evident.

    Many years later, after we had seen it with the famous twin aircraft carbs that were used on several other local Long Beach racers and their cars, it turned the last chapter by using the 671 supercharger. In the original grand opening of the Lion’s Dragstrip museum in 2017, it was shown in a nice display near my color drag racing films being played on the big screen monitor on the wall.

    The most recent news is the total rebuild of the purple 32 Vicky Sedan, being done by the folks at the Price Transfer Automobilia complex Lions Foundation.

    New memories to go along with old memories just sits well with most of us old drag racers and former hot rod teens.

    Me too.

    Because there is no way he said that.

    'Ol Henry died in 1947, the SBC was introduced in 1955.

    He had no way of knowing how popular that engine in his early cars was going to be...

    HRP--Hi Buddy --Had chance to go to THE Grand National Roadster Show this year. There is series of 6 or so buildings with a few with a bit of open ground between them. In honor of the 90th anniversary of the 32 Ford--- There was 90 (more or less, I'd guess more) 32 Fords in the openings!! At least 1 of every style of 32--Some were iconic cars you recognized immediately all of them were real (maybe a glass car or so, but who cares at this show of honor) I took a lot of pictures, but as it's been from day one, my computer won't show them on the HAMB. I personally counted over 50 but I lost track. The 2 things that really blew me away was the organization it took to get them ALL there and the crowds of owners trading stories and enjoying the day.. THAT-----Was asight to see! Bill Rinaldi
