History
Hand built by my dad in 1952 for me and my twin brother and my older brother. Restored by me and my brothers in 2004. Take to local cruise-ins and car shows on my '51 Chevy 1-ton flatbed dually or in the bed of my '05 SSR or on brother's '82 custom El Camino as a tribute to my dad, Kenneth Earl Pylant, RIP.
UPDATE: The Racer was invited to be displayed at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California from December 16th, 2017 through November of 2018, as part of a display of "Sidewalk Speedsters".
