We went up to Northern California to visit a customer's car collection for the first of our holiday gift guides for 2018. Brian George owns a variety of cool exotics, muscle cars and hot rods. He is the co-owner of Sinister Diesel, a manufacturer and retailer of performance products for late model diesel trucks. We are glad we could take time out of his schedule to assist us with the photo shoot. His 1931 Ford Roadster caught our eye at a few car shows last year and we are glad to feature it on our holiday catalog cover.
The roadster was built by Roseville Rod and Custom in Roseville, Ca. It has been featured in a number of automotive magazines and won numerous awards. Roseville created a custom firewall, cowl and rear quarter panels for the roadster. It was painted in PPG Midnight Blue paint. Interior enhancements include a teak wood floor and 1929 Chandler gauges. The roadster is powered by a Ford flathead engine with an Ardun OHV conversion.
