now at the Petersen museum, this is the 1939 lakester named the Meteor, and handbuilt from 5 scrapped vehicles



when it was at the 2011 Del Mar Goodguys, I got photos of it from up close, inside and out.

While it is the museum and will get a lot more people to respect the enormous commitment the builder had, and the talent in making this car, the stantions and ropes will not allow museum guests to get as close and with the great lighting I had available at the 2011 Goodguys. Kudos to the museum for getting it on display!

  1. I looked at the (great) pics you took at Del Mar and I can see the gas tank is actually a Whizzer Motorbike tank (pre-war Model F). It's gas cap is very distinctive. It holds 1 gallon. Cheers. Whizzerick.
