(Words and photos by Doug Gregory) – I went all crazy on the order of photos so even though it might look like we’re showing them in the order they were taken, I assure you they are not. I am a picky old fart and if waiting for people doesn’t work I’ll move on and come back later to try again. I don’t ask folks to move and instead get aggravated like us older folks do. One day I’ll explode without warning. Plan accordingly.
Tons of interesting in here. There’s Dave Huber’s trophy-winning, former Mickey Thompson trophy-four-powered digger. Tony McConnell brought his mobile slot car track for young and old to enjoy.
One of the craziest things we saw was this scratch-build recreation of the 1932 Burden-Miller Special. It’s is virtually all one-off stuff to form a supercharged V16 all-wheel-drive roadster. They are literally working from blueprints and making molds for casting parts that don’t exist. We’ll keep our ear to the ground for updates as this progresses.
Plenty of vintage iron to check out and we enjoyed them all. Normally I don’t get into low-rider-ish style cars, but these were a bit different and I found myself liking it. The Green B-body was even powered by a highly-polished W-motor. Kewl.
Come back and check out more from the 2019 Cincinnati Cavalcade of Customs.
