1932 Ford, "Silver Dollar"

According to Mike Bamber, The original "Silver Dollar" was built over 45 years ago "with a lot of help from many friends." we should all have such friends if the photo below is any indication. The original "Silver Dollar" was a 1941 willys pick-up built for drag racing in the days before catalytic converters and unleaded fuel. Mike says he named the the "Silver Dollar" because it "took many of them, and six-packs, to build it." Money for the parts, six-packs for the friends needed to complete it. Once completed the Willys scorched local San Diego drags for several years, winning its fair share of races. Eventually, though, the cost of remaining competetive against high-budget car forced "Silver Dollar" into retirement.

The new "Silver Dollar" is Mike's tribute to the original. "I wanted a cool looking street rod with lots of horsepower, and Randy "Mr. Deuce" Clark was the right choice to build it."
