1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe owned, built and raced by Harry and Peter Burkholder of Sacramento, California. The coupe was built in 1958, and it made it's first public appearance at the 1958 Sacramento Autorama. After the Autorama, the coupe debuted at the Kingdon Drag Strip at the March races. Harry was 18 years old at the time, and Peter was 19. The coupe was the first car Harry ever raced. Kingdon was always considered "home" for Harry and Peter, as the Sacramento Raceway hadn't opened yet.[1]
