Documentaries about two of the three can be viewed below (beginning with the McGee roadster). Check back soon for the debut of the Hirohata documentary.

In TRJ #75 we have the full story of Dave Russell’s 1931 Model A Victoria, a ’50s-style hot rod that he built in his home garage over an 11 year span. Here’s a clip of the Hemi-powered Vicky in action at the historic Richmond Dragway earlier this summer.
Few examples trump this original late-’50s footage from the Coachmen Car Club recorded from 1955-1957. The Barris “Kopper Kart,” which was cloned and featured in the new TRJ #70, can be seen in the opening moments.
Ian Loska’s nailhead-powered ’34 pickup was built around a fully-integrated roll cage and can take a beating, as witnessed by this video of Ian putting it through its paces. Look for the full story in TRJ #69.
