1940 Ford Coupe owned by Agitators of Fullerton car club member Bill Daniels of La Habra, California. Bill bought the car after wrecking his 1950 Oldsmobile in a street race in 1956. "I couldn't get hot-rodding out of my mind," Bill told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2020, "so my dad and I found a 1940 Ford for the Olds drivetrain, that was basically unhurt. With Jack's help we put another car together, but this time for the dragstrip, no street racing!" Yellow was Bill's color. "I'm colorblind but yellow stood out for me."[1]
