Americana Festival, Centerville, OH, July 5 -- a strange but cool 60 year old homebuilt car
Hi folks -- of all the cars at this years Americana Festival I thought this one was the most interesting. Cobbled together some 60 years ago, it is not a Crosley Hot Shot as I first thought. Some old guy, probably now dead, put this together years ago by piecing various body parts on a fabricated frame. It is powered by a Ford 60 h.p. flathead v-8. Back in those days people were truly ingenious, working with little money but excellent craft skills and creativity.
