A photo of Woods' roadster featuring 1933 Chevrolet headlights and flipper hubcaps. According to Richard "Nobey" Noble, the guys all around Burbank, Pasadena, and Glendale ran flipper hubcaps with ripples on their hot rods before the war. "You don't see them much in photos, because pre-war photos are so rare. Dad said they used to go alongside rival clubs' cars, going down the street, bang into them, and try to flip their hub caps off. Kind of like Gladiators of Rome, with their Chariots. This was a game they played on the streets, that was pretty common." Photo from The Richard "Nobey" Noble Photo Collection.

Ford Model T Roadster owned by Jim Woods of Burbank, California. Woods ran the car at the lakes quite a bit before the war. It ran a 1932 Ford frame, and it was dressed up with flipper hubcaps with ripples and 1933 Chevrolet headlights.[1]
