About the Author

Frank Oddo was an avid street rodder known for his fine 1940 Ford coupe street rod (originally flathead-powered). He wrote for Street Rodder magazine for 25 years, plus wrote articles for Custom Rodder, Rod & Custom, Hot Rod, Trucking, Classic Trucking and Ford Times. Starting drag racing (with a flathead Ford) in the mid-50s, he subsequently became a dry-lakes and Bonneville racer. At Bonneville he has ran 223 mph in his belly-tank lakester and 208 at El Mirage dry lake. He was a member of the Early Ford V-8 Club and a charter member of the 40s Limited street-rod club. Frank was also a member of the Rod Riders Racing Team, a club affiliated with the Southern California Timing Association.
