Hot rod historians will be happy to know the Ed Iskenderian roadster will be on display inside the Ed Pink Racing Engines booth on the midway at the Goodguys 12th Meguiar’s Del Mar Nationals March 30-April 1st at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Built in 1939 and featured on the cover of Hot Rod Magazine in 1948, Isky’s roadster is truly a time capsule to the bygone era of post war hot rodding. It hasn’t been washed or dusted in over 20 years, maintaining a perfect patina not seen on very many cars today. Fans will have the chance to see the historic roadster, along with Pink’s red ’29 and a few others at Pink’s booth all weekend long.
Both Iskenderian and Pink will be honored as Hot Rod Hero’s throughout the event in Del Mar. On Saturday March 31st, Pink and Iskenderian will take part in a special meet & greet with fans at 11:30am inside the Mission Tower building. The two hot rodding legends will be interviewed, recall career highlights and answer fans’ questions in an open forum. They’ll also sign autographs for fans during the weekend. Pink was able to reproduce a historic old photograph of the two men together at a 1960s era drag race that will be given out for free to fans seeking autographs (while supplies last).
