’29 Dodge DA Wins Silver

2 months ago Heritage

The Grand National Roadster Show hosted its 72nd annual event in Pomona, California, at the end of January. With over 40,000 attendees and 1,000 vehicles on display, it’s one of the best events year-round to showcase and judge custom vehicles. Twelve pre-1937 vehicles had the honor to compete in America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) competition; and while only one can prevail, eleven walk away with a second-place award. Our favorite entry this year? A 1929 Dodge DA roadster nicknamed “Six Shooter” because of its classic six-cylinder flat head engine. “Most roadsters are Fords and some are Chevrolets. So, to see an extremely rare Dodge, especially one that is built to this level, was an unexpected treat for spectators,” commented Ewald Penner, a well-respected builder in the community. He and his brothers, Otto and Kurt, operate Jellybean Autocrafters in Surrey, B.C., and are the proud owners of this runner up. The Penners’ journey started with a poorly restored car and ended with a secured place as hot rod royalty. Check out their story.
