"The Royal Hawaiian" - Robert Ruiz 22250210
An 18 month all steel body scratch build in small 2 car garage in Hesperia CA by owner and builder Robert Ruiz and handfuls of family and friends.
"The Royal Hawaiian" - Robert Ruiz 20150616
Build was heavily influenced by Ed Roth's 1960s showrods and the desire for something completely different than was currently out there. 10 lbs. of shit in a 5 lb. bag. The only thing heaven and hell can agree on is this power plant. First debut at the GNRS 2011. Went on all over the Southern California car circuits. To include invite only to Blackie Gejeian's Fresno Autorama, Best of Show at Ventura Beatnik Blowout, Best in Class and Best Engine at Long Beach Motorama, Feature car at Hot Rod Magazines-Hot Rod Homecoming Pomona CA.
