As always I am on the lookout for new pics of the Spurgin Giovanine 1925 Chev roadster. This particular photo I have known about for a while it was in the September 1948 SCTA program, I had not been able to get a copy for 18 months but finally snagged a copy. Below is the image and page that I fist saw on ebay. At the bottom of this post, the scan.

This streamliner built By Bill Burke for the Lodes brothers power came in the form of a V8-60. Competing in A class Streamliner it was timed at 105.88mph in October '48. As a comparison Alex Xydias So-Cal Speed Shop entry ran 127.29mph for first place in A streamliner. 1946-48 bellytank bodied cars ran streamliner classes, it wasn't until 1949 that a separate lakester class was created.
