The Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum in Fairbanks, Alaska has three pre-war midget racers, including a 1934 Offenshauser and 1937 Ford V8-60. This video shows museum manager, Willy Vinton, taking our 1938 Elto "Southwest Chrome" on its maiden Alaska run outside the museum. The combination of a high-compression engine and skinny tires resulted in a noisy push start. Our apologies to the neighbors for the loud noise! This Elto was built by Stan Winters and driven by Ralph Moody, Don Hicks, Lane Murray, Andy Ellis, Art Sprague and Mel Wilbur.
