me looking rather happy...that's because I was pretty much in Hot Rod
Heaven. Most people should recognise this car as the roadster that Elvis
drove in the movie "Loving You", one of my all time favourite Elvis flicks.
|Possibly the most beautful dragster ever. The Greer-Black-Prudhomme dragster is a beautiful sight to behold. The '59 Ranchero push car is pretty cool too.|
not a huge speedway fan, but I love these vintage sprint cars. They look
so much nicer without all of the wings and rubbish hanging off them.
This would be a great Hot Rod...if you didn't have any friends!
was such a neat lakes car that I just had to snap it. As you can see by
the back drop, it has a bit of a race history too. One problem with the
NHRA Museum though, the chains are too high and too close to the cars.
I just love the colour combination.
car that everyone should recognise and has probably seen before, but I
just had to have my own photo of it.
Ed Iskenderian (Isky Cams) built this in the late 30's early 40's (I think) and it has never been restored. I noticed that one of the headlight supports had broken at some stage and been welded back on. The weld was never ground down, probably been like that since 1954 or something!
Just gotta love this car.
a great looking custom. I don't think it's famous, just looks great. Behind
it is a clone of the Matranga Merc. Whoops! Correction! It's actually
the Zarro Merc that has been beautifully restored by Kurt McCormick. Kurt
also has the R&C Dream Truck, the Buddy Alcorn Merc and a bunch of other
Barris Kustoms. I'd love to meet the guy. Next time maybe.
Both of these cars are real nice, probably nicer than anything ever done in the 50's.
|As you all probably know if you've seen the rest of this site I'm into model cars as well. These are just a couple of real nice models that Jim(?) Davis has built for the Museum. Very nicely done.|
