Larry Johnson's 1962 Sanger SK drag-boat. Known as "Tutoom," Johnson's boat featured a pearl red, white and blue paint job by George Barris. It was upholstered by Eddie Martinez in pearl white. In December of 2020 Gene Sadoian told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama that Larry had a cabinet shop in Englewood, "so he worked out a deal with Eddies wife Stella, build cabinets, exchange for upholstery in the boat. Eddie demurred as usual until his wife got after him." Powered by an Ed Pink Oldsmobile engine, Gene recalled that the boat really rocked at Marine Stadium in Long Beach.
