Dave Lane set out to build a real hot rod pedal car, incorporating pieces from several of the award-winning cars he's built over the years. Starting with a body donated by Phil Becker, he added a gauge panel, duplicating what is in Phil’s 2011 Street Rod of the Year 1932 three-window coupe. He then built an injection setup similar to the one on Floyd Williams’ 2010 Hot Rod of the Year roadster. The exhaust was inspired by the headers used on George Poteet's award-winning 1932 roadster. The interior of the pedal car duplicated the interior of a magazine featured roadster he built, now owned by Rich Stapf. Finally, the color is the same used on Alan Button's award-winning 1932 three-window coupe. All of this, along with many other custom pieces, comes together for a really nice ’32 roadster pedal car.
Special thanks to Jon Wright's Custom Chrome Plating (Grafton, Ohio), Schober's Custom Hot Rod Interiors (Sandwich, Illinois), DuPont for the Chromopremier paint, Scott Aalto for pinstriping, and Phil Becker for the body.
