Fair Weather Road­ster

Hot Rod Deluxe - - Scrapbook - John Dixon

I bought my first hot rod in 1959, a ’34 Plymouth. When I got a chance to buy the road­ster in 1974, un­for­tu­nately Wash­ing­ton State was en­forc­ing “fair weather laws,” where you had to have fend­ers, road clear­ance heights, and other re­stric­tions. The laws were changed, and I now own sev­eral fend­er­less cars.

I be­lieve the car orig­i­nally came out of the San Fran­cisco area. I have been able to trace some of its his­tory to drag rac­ing in the early 1950s. Pre­vi­ous own­ers: 1955, Bob Tomey, Yakima; 1955-1959, Keith Clark, Yakima; 1959-1967, Thomas Bolin, Yakima; 1967-1968, Richard White, Gig Har­bor; 1969-1974, Bill Con­well, Lacey; 1974-present, John and Linda Dixon, Lacey.
