This year’s GNRS featured a large turnout of show cars under the many roofs of the Pomona Fairplex as well as hundreds of hot rods that filled the outdoor car show area over the weekend. While it was a weekend filled with “dodging” the rain it most assuredly didn’t dampen the spirits as record crowds filled the many halls.

Starting with a Brookville Roadsters ’32 Ford two-door Phaeton body the project began. While at Roy Rizio Street Rods the following bodywork was undertaken: Extensive bodywork is featured with the grille narrowed 2 inches, cowl narrowed 1 ½ inches, cowl vent narrowed 1 inch, doors shortened 2 inches, rear quarters lengthened 2 inches, rear wheel wells raised 4 inches as well re-radiused, body channeled 6 inches, windshield and top chopped 3 inches, rear body section custom shaped like a two-door sedan, a custom rolled aluminum pan, and a custom hood.

Next up the body and paintwork were handled by Darryl Hollenbeck out of his vintage Color Studio along with Art Himsl flames, and Eric Reyes pinstriping. From here Sid Chavers performed his stitchwork at Sid Chavers Upholstery, Sherm’s Custom Plating handled all the brightwork (chrome and polishing), and the Indy-style wheels are from E.T. Mags now wrapped in Coker-Excelsior rubber.
