That's Tom McMullen and his roadster. His highboy has arguably set the standard for 32 roadsters. The car recently sold for $700,000. McMullen owned and operated a automotive electrical shop as well as publishing a number
of car and motorcycle magazines.
Something I didn't know was that McMullen was not the original builder of the car. Richard and Phyllis Lovesee owned the car before McMullen had it and guite a lot of the look of the car came from Gene Winfield.
