Allan Fielding's 1932 Ford 5-Window Coupe of Burriville, Rhode Island. Allan traded the car for a 1951 Oldsmobile around 1955. The coupe had already been hot rodded when Allan got it, and it ran a channeled 1932 Ford chassis. Allan and his friends George Summers and Ronnie Bouchard installed a 1934 Ford chassis and a Hemi in the car before they got it back on the strip.
Carl Szembrot's 1950 Studebaker convertible of Albany, New York was restyled by R. K. Body Works around 1951-1952. The rear end of the car was inspired by the 1951 Gm LeSabre concept car. Gary Breau of Rhode Island bought the remains of the car in 2003.

George Barris' 1963 Buick Riviera of Encino, California. George, who owned and operated Barris Kustom City in North Hollywood, California, designed the car himself. Known as "The Villa Riviera Buick," the build was completed in 1963. In 1964 a white iteration of the car appeared in the popular Surf-movie "For Those Who Think Young." Jeffrey B. Goldstein of Warwick, Rhode Island bought the old custom in 2015. After buying it, Jeffrey restored the Buick back to how it appeared in 1964.
Mike Fasulo's 1936 Ford Club Cabriolet of Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Mike bought the car as a non-running project in 2017. He believes the car was originally restyled in the 1950s, and according to rumors it might be an old Texas car.
