"The Emperor" won the 1960 AMBR. Cool story about the young Chuck Krikorian from Fresno building most of the car and then shipping it off to George Barris for the final touches (that nose shouts Barris). Chuck was friends with Blackie Gejeian and was brother-in-law to Richard Peters, who built the Ala Kart before shipping it off to George Barris . . . So you have these 3 young Fresno friends who go on to win 4 AMBR awards in a span of 6 years! Blackie won in '55 for his Shish Kabob '26 T Peters won in '58 and '59 for Ala Kart Chuck won in '60 for this '29 roadster. Holy shit. I have read that the '57 Cadillac 406 ci mill produced 550 hp . . . is that right? Holy shit. The following pics were taken from the Custom Rodder site: The last pic shows Blackie sitting on the tire. He owned this car for the last 30 or so years of his life.
