Hot Rodder Jerry Cannon of Ramona, California won the Speed ’33 Roadster at the Goodguys 12th Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona. Standing in for him at the giveaway ceremony was fellow Over the Hill Gang (San Diego Chapter) member Ralph Garcia. Cannon is currently in South America and wrote a note telling Garcia that he would be NOT reachable by phone in case he’d won. He’s gonna have a big surprise when he returns to the United States!
The lucky key that started the roadster’s potent Roush 402 small block turned out to be key #16 out of 25 finalists. Cannon qualified to win the car earlier this sprint at the Goodguys Del Mar Nationals. Both Phil and Jeremy Gerber of the Roadster Shop as well as American Speed’s Mark Trostle were on hand for the presentation which took place in front of a packed house!
Congratulations from all of us here at Goodguys and all the suppliers and sponsors who made the Speed ’33 such a memorable giveaway car!
