A new AMBR has been crowned, another Grand National Roadster Show is past, and once again we had a blast hanging out in Pomona with our friends, readers, and fellow hot rodders. Our “Revolving Rolling Stock” exhibit was a hit. Throughout the weekend we swapped the wheels and tires on our Deuce roadster, showing how you can emulate styles from the ’40s through the ’70s with a simple rolling stock change. Thanks to Rocket Racing Wheels, Wheel Vintiques, E-T Wheels, and Coker Tire for making it a success. We’ll bring you more on that in print, but we wanted to share some photos from our booth in the meantime.

Larry Olson’s ’33 Ford roadster, built by Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop in Louisville, Kentucky, was named America’s Most Beautiful Roadster at last weekend’s Grand National Roadster Show.

We also wanted to congratulate South Dakota hot rodder Larry Olson, who took home the 10-footer with his Bobby Alloway-built ’33 Ford roadster. This is the second AMBR win for Alloway. Beneath the flamed, heavily modified exterior of the roadster lies a fuel injected Red Ram Hemi hooked to a 5-speed and a Halibrand V8 quickchange.

Wheel Vintiques’ Gennie steel wheels with ’47-’48 Ford caps and rings shod with 560-15 and 750-16 Firestone black wall bias-ply tires struck a traditional ’50s hot rod vibe. All tires for the exhibit came from Coker Tire.

In the TRJ booth we hosted a “Revolving Rolling Stock” exhibit. Our Deuce roadster is shown here in perhaps its most recognizable form with E-T five-spokes with M&H slicks and Michelin XZX 145s.

We saw several cars with an Indy-inspired look at the GNRS this year, and we kept pace with our Rocket Racing Wheels’ Solids wrapped in 500R16 and 700R18 Excelsior Stahl Sport radials. The Rocket Solids also look cool with their combination knock-offs and bolt covers (watch for our upcoming print feature for more).

We were thrilled when Coker reintroduced the 1100-series dirt trackers. Here E-T Wheels’ E-T IIIs are wrapped in 11.00-16 Firestone Double Diamond dirt trackers and Michelin XZX 145s for a classic ’60s-’70s street/strip look.

You can see more coverage from the show on the HAMB (click here, here, and here for a few of our favorite threads). Thanks to each of you who stopped by to check out our Rolling Stock display and visit with us in the TRJ booth, and congratulations to John Buck and his crew at the Rod Shows for putting on another spectacular event.
