Alloway, who won the Ridler in '85, also brought another car to Detroit: Gai Wilson's '32 Ford coupe. If this car looks tweaked, you've got a good eye. Bobby channeled the front of the body by 1 3/4 inches, which dropped the grilleshell another 2 1/5 inches. He then split the top of fenders and sectioned them by 1 1/2 inches to bury a special wheel under the fender for an ultimate tucked look (using an American 16-inch center with a 15-inch hoop. All of this put the nose on the ground without lowering the car more than the suspension could handle. Combined with a serious 454 with dual-quads, it was one of eight Ridler finalists (25 were up for the title). Considering that two Speedstars also made the final count, we'd say Bobby had a big week.
