The Project 39 Rat Rod Hot Rod is Ready to Rip it Up!

March 14th, 2015

The Project 39 1939 Ford Pickup Rat Rod Hot Rod is one Fast, Mean Machine and the Aaron Brown led team will be going after the land speed record in its class later this year at Bonneville.

The team, already holders of the NASCAR Stock CAR Class Land Speed Record at 244 MPH, expect this hot rod to hit 230 MPH.

Marketing partnerships are available especially for any Moonshine or Spirit brand which would like to have a case of their product strapped to the bed of this hot rod as it makes a run on the salt flats thereby becoming the “World’s Fastest Moonshine”.

Contact Mike Cesario at 408-220-3167 or email him at mike@racersdrive.com for details.

3:10 - neils 34 BentleyWhile the memories of an excellent car show and luncheon are fresh in my mind I thought I would sent out a quick recap on today’s Car Guys of Los Gatos gathering at Aldo’s of Los Gatos.

We were glad to see CGLG Founder Rubin Jurman back on his feet after suffering some injuries in a crash involving his classic early 50′s Rolls Royce Limousine. Rubin was welcomed back with much enthusiasm from the members on hand.

We had over 30 classic cars on display with a list of the notables including the following:

Austin Kilburn – 91 Rolls Royce
Brian Richardson 1963 Corvette
Bruce Kennedy – 41 Buick
Dave Gitin – Buick Riviera
Dave Jensen – 2011 Porsche Cayman
Doug Bowyer – 38 Chevy Deluxe Roadster
Forrest Straight – A “Real Deal” 1965 Shelby Cobra
Garth Norris – 62 Series 1 Jag XKE Roadster
George Graveline – Mark 7 Jaguar
Jerry & Susie Stalder – guests of Jim and Bev Weager (59 RR Silver Cloud) who brought some Italian pizzaz to the show with their 89 Ferrari Mondial T.
Kirby Hollis – Porsche 944
Mike Cesario – 69 Series 2, XKE 2+2
Mike Knips – 64 Dodge Dart
Mike Yarman – 1978 Porsche Turbo in brilliant pearlescence splendor
Neil Kirkham – 34 Bentley 3 position Drophead Coupe
Ralph Flynn – 1937 Rolls Royce
Roger Zimmerman – 66 Corvette Roadster
Teresa Mills – BMW Hybrid

It seemed like all of the members enjoyed the car show and luncheon at Aldo’s which followed.

Our next regualrly scheduled gathering will be on Tuesday April 14th at Aldo’s. We’ll send out further email messages but please RSVP to mike@racersdrive.com if you plan on attending on the 14th.

Thank you.

The Project 39 team is looking for a marketing partner/sponsor/distiller who wants their brand to be declared the world’s fastest.

Any amount available will be most appreciated and reciprocated with some solid PR support.
