The American hot rod scene developed very quickly after WWII. G.I.’s with speed on their minds picked up surplus WW2 fighter belly fuel tanks, and build hot rods around them.
One of the best known is the So-Cal Speed Shop “Lakester”, built by Alex Xydias. It was built using a P-38 belly tank, with a flat-head v-8 stuffed in the back.
In 1951, at the Bonneville Salt Flats, the So-Cal team ran the racer at 145.395 mph, a new record for their class.

It's a great honour to be presented in such a fine publication; it's one of my favorites, and I keep every issue as a reference piece. The Editor-in-Chief Mick Walsh did a wonderful job of showing the enthusiam I have for my collection.
He also mentioned doing a piece on my racing history artwork in the spring; I'm very much looking forward to that interview.
