The Chuck and Joanna Quesnel Photo Collection
Chuck and Joanna Quesnel were early dry lakes racers. Chuck was a member of the Culver City Screwdrivers. Joanna was a part of the club, but not considered a member as she was a girl. Chuck and Joanna went separate ways later on, and Joanna remarried and got a son named Douglas. Douglas has shared these photos and some memories and stories about Chuck and Joanna with the Kustomrama Photo Archive. Douglas remembers that his mother told him that the girls were never allowed to race the guys. Joanna had a 1932 Ford roadster that she liked to race, but her car never had any race numbers on. Chuck's younger brother, Jerry Quesnel, was an hourly employee of Barris Kustoms and an expert metal-man. Jerry owned a customized 1949 Mercury that is known as one of the first, if not the first ever chopped 1949 - 1951 Mercury.
