The McGee Roadster : Hot Rod Legend

The McGee Deuce roadster, one of the most iconic hot rods ever, is now the focus of an exciting full-length documentary by the Historic Vehicle Association. Packed with vintage and contemporary action footage, and interviews with guys like Ed Iskenderian, the roadster’s current owner, Bruce Meyer, and TRJ senior contributor Pat Ganahl and senior editor Greg Sharp, the film captures the spirit of the car and the era it was born from.

Goodwood Revival 2017 Wet Friday!

Attended the 2017 Goodwood Revival and as everyone knows this a very diverse event.

Plus the sound of the GT40 flat out down the main straight is hard to top.
