Norwegian Speed King Arvid Johansen with his stripped-down 1930 Ford Model A Roadster. Johansen's hopped-up Model A featured a Record OHV head, a Winfield carburetor, a Scintilla Vertex magneto, and hi-comp pistons made by Møller & Larsen. A powerful combo that made him nearly unbeatable for several seasons, and he used to brag about having at least one first price position in all forms of racing that had been hosted in Norway in the 1930s.

Greger Strøm and Engelhardt Løchen worked together at Lillestrøm Bilcentral. Løchen had a 1929 Ford Model A roadster that he raced, and one of Arvid Johansen's Record heads wound up on his car. Taken at Lillestrøm Bilcentral, this photo shows Greger and Engelhardt as they are working on Engelhardt's engine. Engelhardt is sitting on the bumper of his car, while Greger is standing behind the engine. Photo from The Greger Strøm Collection.
