Spencer Murray's 1949 Chevrolet of Glendale, California. Spencer worked for Link Paola at Link's Custom Shop when they restyled the car, and he had a heck of a time getting him to work on it. They chopped the top of the car 3 inches in September 1950. We don't know when the build was completed, but Spencer showed it at the 1952 National Roadster Show in Oakland.
Eddie Dye's 1929 Ford Roadster, was built by the Ayala Brothers in the early 1950s.
Tommy Thornburgh's 1947 Studebaker of Gardena, California was restyled by Barris Kustoms. The build was completed late in 1952.
Frank Rose's 1927 Ford Model-T Roadster
Peggy Hart's 1927 Ford Model-T Roadster
