Hello,
     Jess Van Deventer's roadster was one of the first race cars we filmed at Lions. The history of the car and others is documented at the San Diego Racing Museum Webpage by Randy Chenowith.(under the Lions Dragstrip tab) in our communications, this is what he had to say.
 
"My name is Charles Randolph Chenowth , I go by Randy Chenowth On the HAMB I am BIGDADDYUSMC  ,,,

The white Roadster in your movie   is Jess Van Deventer or his brother.  They both drove the car in the very  late 1950's & early 1960's.
The number on the car never changed ... it is #502  ( California Penal Code for drunk driving )

My father built that car in his garage in Imperial Beach, California in the late 1950's..It was originally built for a Bean Bandit... The T roadster  was traded to Van Deventer for a street legal 32 roadster..."

Here's wishing good luck to my nephew, youngrodder1929, this weekend at the RPM Nationals at the Santa Margarita Ranch. There is also more development in the works, with the new nitro heads he and his Dad are making.

What is that engine George? What are those holes in the rocker covers, they aren't spark plug tubes, cause the wires go under the headers.

When I saw it last night I thought it was a BBC, is that what it is George?
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.
