Roger Hughet grew up a “Hot-Rodder” in the small town of Burns, Oregon, pop. 3,000.

This design is for the update of the Oldsmobile Toronado (the first front wheel drive car in America since the Cord of the late 1930s). This design harkens back to the classic cars of an earlier era, with it’s exposed (called “Farkle”) fenders and boat-tail rear-end. Roger pictured this car on the famed Bonneville Salt-Flats before a big race.
