Odds & ends from the 2016 Sacramento Autorama

photos by the author- click to enlarge

This beautiful boat  the "Western Mag Special" was the 1978 National Drag Boat Association (NDBA) National Hi-Point champion for the BFH  (blown fuel hydro) class. During the season the Sanger Tunnel hull boat made a pass that reached 208 MPH in the 1/4 mile    


This very unusual 1935 Hupmobile Sedan hot rod is owned by Gary Pettigrew.  


This was the best shot the author was able to get of John Poole's 1957 Chevrolet 210 "Fleetline" concept built by Pagano Rod & Custom, as there was always a big crowd surrounding it. From the front the car was a typical 1957 Chevy, but the 1952 Chevrolet Fleetline roof grafted on transformed the car.

 

Leaving the show, this cool "barn find" 1932 Ford 5-window coupe was parked in the lot outside. Readers- would you restore the finish or leave it as is?
