In hopes of Ridler glory, Bobby Alloway brought a true hot rod to Detroit. This '32 Ford, powered by an all-aluminum GM Performance Parts ZL-1 big block, was actually a project started by Boyd Coddington just before his empire crumbled a few years back. A sister to the Boydster II, which won the Grand National Roadster Show's America's Most Beautiful Roadster trophy a few years back, Alloway bought this steel body and its framerails three years ago with the idea of taking the finished product to the 50th Autorama. George Lange, the guy who owns the '56 Ford that graced our cover a few months back, was quite pleased to be a finalist; the inside scoop is he only lost to the Foose car by one vote.
