Larry Andersen is the creator and builder of this one of a kind award winning and hand carved Myrtle wood 1932 Ford body roadster. It is even trademarked, Woodster™ and also known as Knotty. The idea came about when he first started building and selling custom wood dashes for the roadster, which were a huge, hit. He took his old pickup and filled it with Myrtle wood took it home and started building his car. Larry sought out to build a unique one of a kind car because that is what Larry is all about. He has been working on an all rubber car as well. Anyone can build a roadster but how many people can create this kind of car that is built to scale. As Larry stated, “My mission is to preserve the spirit of the wood. Build a car out of solid wood, drive the car, enjoy the car, have the car basically forever. Have a tree, now you drive one. That’s what I think. Same tree, same car.” 6 years went by before this car was ready to be driven. The solid body was put together using no screws or bolts. The car includes a 350 Chevy motor, wood blower, wood heads and wood carbs. It is really fuel injected with fake carbs and a fake blower but they sure look real. A special undercoat keeps the wooden engine parts from burning. Additional wood components include the grill, which was made from 450 individual pieces, the headlight buckets, steering wheel, and other accessories. The hard top is easily removable as the car can be a convertible to enjoy the sun and open air. The wooden dash is right at home in the car and is equipped with classic instruments. The interior was designed to match the exterior to maintain the complete wood continuity throughout the car. It has been driven in all types of weather conditions in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, and Nevada. The car here was completed and road tested since 1990. It has held up exceptionally well and looks as good as the day it was built. The attention this car commands is truly remarkable. For example, it won the People’s Choice Award out of 1,100 entries in the Northwest National’s Car Show in Yakima, Washington. In 1991, Knotty had its first centerfold with Street Rodder Magazine. World-renowned photographer, Dale Moreau, took pictures as part of this 4 page hot rod article. Special mention must be told of the invitation to attend the 46th annual Fresno Autorama in 2005. Attendance to this prestigious event requires a personal invitation from the man himself, Blackie Gejeian. Of the 161 unique one of a kind cars entered one thing set the Woodster apart from all the rest. It’s solid wood body is like non other. This article and video was originally produced in 2006 and the car continues to be shown at special events.

"The year is 1947, an ex-serviceman returns home to Southern California. His old '32 Ford Roadster is removed from the shed, and the guts of a wrecked '39 Mercury sedan are transplanted in, giving more power, braking and top speed, essential for the dry lakes racing career he will embark on. He outfits the motor with products from the growing speed equipment industries catalogues, and races his car against fellow car club members and the clock. The car also serves as daily transport for him in the mild So Cal climate, the loud twin exhausts upsetting the locals still not used to the returned soldiers need for peacetime thrills. The era immediately following WW2 in Southern California was the time frame and inspiration for me to build an accurate recreation of a stripped down, dry lakes racing, late forties street roadster. Something of a time machine, so that a drive down the street or across the state could become a journey back sixty years. Rancho Deluxe is my full time business, building traditional hotrod classics and components, and assembling period correct cars. The Rancho Deluxe roadster is my expression of a true Hot-Rod, a time machine back to when innovation was hand built, and the true test of man and machine was flat out across the Lakes" -Ben Thomas Owner of Rancho Deluxe Melbourne/ Australia http://www.ranchodeluxe.com.au/ The above article taken from: Fuel Magazine Australia Issue No.4 http://fuelmagazine.bigcartel.com/product/fuel-magazine-issue-04 http://www.fuelzine.com Check out another article on Ben Thomas: http://mrblanc.com/ben-thomas-at-rancho-deluxe/ Director: Tom Broadhurst Director of Photography: Daniel De Silva Assistant Camera Operators Aaron Cuthbert Tom Broadhurst Editor/Color Grading Daniel De Silva Still Photographs Tom Broadhurst http://ifthiswasthis.blogspot.com/ Music "Take the A Train by Bass, Bone, Blue" Gemma Boyd http://www.gemmaboyd.com http://soundcloud.com/gemma-boyd Check us out at: http://vimeo.com/channels/fueltanktv http://banditfilms.blogspot.com/+ More details
