The Internet Source for Motorsports News and Information: "POMONA, Calif. -- The celebration continues at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California, as the '32 Ford, the quintessential hot rod, marks its diamond jubilee.

'Deuces Wild,' the Museum's anniversary exhibit, opens Feb. 7 featuring several of the 75 Most Significant '32 Ford hot rods as determined by a blue- ribbon panel of hot rod experts. Included will be Chili Catallo's 'Little Deuce Coupe' which appeared on the Beach Boys album of the same name -- perhaps one of the most famous '32 Ford hot rods of all time; a re-creation of Fred Allen's 'Devil Deuce;' the 'Orange Crate;' and roadsters from Tommy Foster, Neal East and the Berardini Bros. In total, 11 cars, 10 of which were deemed the '75 most significant.' The exhibit runs until June 18.

'You'll never see these historical cars together again,' said Museum Executive Director Tony Thacker, who was on the judging panel and has authored a book on the Deuce. 'If you're a Deuce fan, this is a once-in-a- lifetime collection.'

In addition to the cars, historic and never-before-displayed photography of early '32 Fords in production will be shown. Photographs of hot rods and racing Deuces will grace the walls of the Museum, a landmark part of the Los Angeles County Fairplex."
