Maywood Drag Wagons
Police Office Ray Anderson
Ray Anderson was a Maywood police officer who was asked by the boys in the club to sponsor them. In 2016 Ray's daughter told Kustomrama that the club member gave as much as they received from her family: "One Christmas after my dad had been in a on-duty motorcycle accident and hospitalized for several months, gifts were not going to be delivered by Santa that year. My brother and I were very young and probably wouldn't have understood, but "the boys" arrived with a tree at 4am and got it decorated and numerous gifts, all wrapped, placed beneath that little tree before my brother and I awoke. My dad loved these boys. He would spend hours pinstriping their cars, when they couldn't afford Ed Roth to do it for them, or painting custom characters on the fenders, like the rattlesnake with the top hat and bow tie."
