Built By A Preacher, Owned By A Hot Rodder

The price of the vehicle he owns can’t define a true hot rodder, but he can be judged by the enthusiasm he displays for our pastime. Some guys, who have more money than sense, throw hundreds of thousands at top name builders simply so they can say that they own a Foose- or Boyd Coddington-built car. Many times, once the Grand National Show is over, they lose interest and the car languishes in their garage. Randy Palmer of Huntington Beach, CA, is one of those rare breeds of rodders who not only has the cash to own what he wants, he also wants to take his vehicles to shows, both large and small.
