Re: Mystery Car Contest Week 13

It is a 1932 Ford Deuce Roadster Flathead
To be more specific, Ray Browns dry lakes racing 1932 Ford Deuce Flathead Roadster.
Hot rod build date was 1946

"And comin’ off the line when the light turns green
Well she blows ’em outta the water like you never seen
I get pushed out of shape and it’s hard to steer
When I get rubber in all four gears"

http://www.petersen.org/default.cfm?...1813&CarID=357
In 1945 and early 1946, 17-year old Ray Brown built his hi-boy roadster while working for Eddie Meyer Engineering in Hollywood, California. He painted the hot rod a distinctive Sherwood Green, an available 1946 Buick color, and raced it on the dry lakes in 1946 and 1947. In 1948 Ray sold the car to Bob Hutchison who took it to Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Hutchison retired in 1973 and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, taking the car with him. From 1949 through 1991, the car was in dry storage and saw little use. In 1991, the roadster was discovered in untouched original condition--complete with eleven timing tags--by Kirk White who purchased it and gave it a ground-up restoration, returning the hi-boy to its original racing configuration with all correct period speed equipment. Since restoration, the car has won AACA Junior and Senior awards and was the recipient of the 1994 AACA "Past Presidents' Award," the highest honor a competition car can receive.

I like the sound of a car that gets rubber in all four gears - reminds me of an old 250 3 speed Cortina my brother had - "When you have this much torque, you only need 3 gears" - classic quote...

If you're going to do that, we'll have to rename the game to "Obvious Car Contest" :-)
