2007 Del Mar Goodguys




Mike LaVallee "True Fire" innovator is a friend of the builder of this 32, and this was the only example of Mike's work I've seen in San Diego. Mike's shop is in Washington (where the car was built) and was bought by a father-son partnership after the car went to a couple shows. Lucky guys. http://www.killerpaint.com/about/mike.html

Ruined his day when he risked cruising up and down on the slicks.... at the horsetrack. I bet he finds a horseshoe nail in the slick... really nice sounding Nova, really pissed guy when his day got screwed up around noon

Pinstriping a Fairlane

Mark and Mary Novak's 48 Stude... from Ventura


You've never seen a Studebaker COE I bet. I never knew Studes were made in the COE form...!

A Cab Over Engine (COE) that has a rear engine, electric exhuast cutout controls to shift from mufflers to stacks, and possible flatbed hauling ability... if they have a ramp... this is a rare rod, and as much as I love COE's, this is the coolest, 'cause it's a work truck, not primped for trophy judging.

This 56 Ford has been chopped 4", sectioned 10", and shortened 18". Tom Pagano must enjoy this immensely, he was awarded the "Texaco Havoline Pick" for the 650HP Ford Cobra powered beaut.


Love the Varga / Petty girl, and how the lavender color of the hood ornament is carried by the flame job

the pinstriping along the side vents is a cool touch, nice way to accentuate the white top and sidewalls, I haven't seen this affect anywhere beforeThe checkerboard under the hood is very cool, and is even on the firewall behind the blockThis is Henry and Mary Ann Rossi's "M&H Special", has a 410 inch motor, and gets my award for best 32 of the show.
Some very excellant detail work, the grilled vent on the sides of the hood to clearance some engine parts, great paint scallops, and the drivers side trunk bulge reminisent of the SS Corvettes, unique.

Found more about this in volume one, issue 1 of The World of Rods magazine, page 16. Constructed by Hot Rods and Custom Stuff of Escondido 1 800 hot rod5 , owned by Mike Richards of Escondido. The engine is from a 57 T-bird, and looks like its supercharged to me, but the magazine writer didn't mention that.... odd, that's a cool feature!
http://www.hotrodscustomstuff.com/ is the website... and is full of cool stuff, like legislative alerts, galleries of the cars they've put out, and a page of all the magazine cars (a mean lots!) they've had featured.
