As the Barrington Concours was winding down last Sunday, my good friend Lou Natenschon told me that collector Jack Bowser was interested in talking to me. Jack had entered a very nice Auburn in the show, but it was another car he wanted to talk about. It seems that he just completed building a very unique "hot rod" with a '34 Ford roadster body and a Marmon V-16 engine. The hood of the Ford had to be stretched a bit to accommodate the long V-16, which is fitted with electronic fuel injection and mated to a Viper six-speed transmission. We're looking forward to getting additional info on the "Real Hot Rod" for a future article. Stay tuned to Old Cars Weekly for that.
