Jack T. Chandler's 1941 Ford of Huntsville, Texas. Jack's Ford was restyled by Spohn Coachworks in Ravensburg, Germany. It was completed around 1951 - 1952, featured in Speed Age October 1952, and it is the first LeSabre inspired Spohn build we have found in print. The rear end of Jack's car was inspired by both the LeSabre and the Buick XP-300.
The 1952 Spohn Palos was built by Spohn Coachworks in Ravensburg for an unknown owner in the early 1950s.
Ed Biggs' 1959 Chevrolet El Camino of Davenport, Iowa. Ed, who was a member of the Idlers of Davenport car club, had Joe Andersen of Joe Andersen's Custom Shop panel paint the car in June of 1959. Ed joined the US Air Force in 1959. He was stationed at the Ramstein Air Base from 1960 to 1963, and had the El Camino shipped over. Unfortunately the car was totaled by a drunk driver in Weisbaden in 1962.
Bengt Wennergren racing his "Street Roadster" at the Ramstein Air Base in Ramstein, Germany in 1966. As Bengt had the only hot rod attending, he ran alone in the "C" class. It was then easy for him to qualify for the Middle Eliminations. This photo shows Bengt as he is about to outrun a Corvette in the Middle Eleminations! Go Bengt!!
