Last weekend the hot rod world watched as the “Kookie Kar” T-bucket and the “Golden Sahara II” crossed the block at Mecum’s Indy auction. Today we can tell you that well-known Pennsylvania hot rodder and car collector Ross Myers is the proud new owner of the Kookie Kar, and it’s slated for restoration. We’ll have the exclusive scoop on this historic hot rod in the near future.
And for those who haven’t heard, the Golden Sahara II was purchased by Larry Klairmont of Chicago, Illinois. Though we don’t know yet whether it will be restored or simply preserved, we do know it will eventually be displayed in his Klairmont Kollections museum and event center alongside an amazing collection of classics, exotics, racecars and hot rods.
