Ray Ellis was about 13 years old when he took the photo, and he believes the show didn't have a name. The show was held on Military Road, Cremourne, a suburb on the North Shore of Sydney.

1932 Ford roadster owned by Rod Foote of Brisbane, Australia. Rod had previously built a Willys Whippet into one of Australia's first hot rods. In 1958 the roadster came up for sale. The car was originally a four-cylinder car. Rod told Unique Cars, "I used to get the really early hot rod magazines from America and I really wanted to build a car along the lines of what they called ‘dry lake’ racers. "[1]

The car was later sold to John Cowling.
