Wishbones car meeting
This Hot Rod was imported from California in the 1960s by the famous Swedish hot rod car builder with the nickname Gamen. Everyone old enough and interested of cars in Sweden knows about Gamen from Swedish motor magazines. Me too.
Believe it or not, but the owner of this hot rod today is Gamen's son Lee. Still in the family after 50 years!
Two four barrel Edelbrock carburettors and an Offenhauser intake. The engine is a Buick Nailhead.
Lee told me when he and his brother was very young their father took them in this car down to French. An accident destroy the cooler and Gamen had to repair it on place.
This windshield wiper doesn't need an electric motor! Lee has the last years done a lot of work to make this hot rod street legal in Sweden. Rebuilt the front with shock absorbers, disc brakes and a lot of other things. Lee want to keep the hot rod as long it's possible as how it was built in the 1960s.
Did they race with this Ford Anglia ?

Hmm... there is some secret about the front axis and wheel, it's not in it's original place!
The roof is chopped too.
Here is the secret, an extension frame that move the front axis about 0.3 meters towards the front and lower it too.
