    I have to agree 100% there. It isn't the amount that Bruce paid for the car it is the individual that took advantage of Frank knowing that he could resell the car for many many times what he bought it from Frank for.

    Gorgeous car and it's great that it stayed with the builder as long as it did. I think it ultimately found a great home with Bruce Meyer. Too bad about what sounds like Frank getting taken advantage of by a shady middle man. Obviously friends and family were not active in looking after Frank's best interest in his later years.

    Well,.... This has been interesting,... Some info good.. some not. The way Franks car changed hands Is a story I might give the details to someday...

    Either way, Frank was delighted Bruce ended up with his Roadster. As it turns out the "middle man" died in a Helicopter Crash 10 years ago... I have had my hands all over this car back in the day. Very few Hot Rods back in the day... (sometimes even now) were built as well as this Roadster... Frank use to say "when you build something, build it to last 100 years.. "

    I still own some of the jigs Frank built to make some of the parts for the roadster.. and before we lost him,.. He gave me his "Circle of Champions" jacket, I miss his whit & wisdom, His vast knowledge, and solid advice (on everything but love & women) .

    If you do a search, You'll find a lot of stuff I posted on Franks Roadster over the years... Including construction pictures....
