The Joe Crisafulli Scratchbook and Photo Collection
Joe Crisafulli of San Jose, California is a founding member of the San Jose Rod and Wheelers car club. The club was formed by Joe and five other members in 1954. In order to get in to the club, and hang a plaque on your car, you had to have something done to your car. Custom work or engine work. In the beginning, Joe believes he was the only one in the club that had a car that featured custom work. Joe had a 1947 Ford that Ken Conn had shaved the deck lid on, and Joe had installed 1949 Lincoln taillights on. After that they needed a dragster, so the club decided to rebuild the engine. Ken's dad had a Ford aut repair shop. With a rebuilt engine and tranny, the club were off to the drags at Little Bonneville in San Jose, California.
