    This car was built and driven by Bill Drake who still runs an engine shop in Rochester, NY. Later in life it was owned by Ron Podsiadly, also of Rochester, who used it as a street rod (please do not take offense to this term). I'm not certin what happened to it after that. Ron, who is on this site, will probably see this and comment. If not, raymay, might like to chime in.
     
  5. Thanks for the clarification! He went into business in 34. That was probably the 1st

    Nice postwar 1946-48 Chrysler Sedambulance with the removable passenger side center pillar. I have seen the Desoto version of this but this is the first Chrysler.

    How can you NOT love giant fire breathing piston engines. Would YOU have the balls to drive this over 200mph? Great men and great machines, when piston power was king.
