Dave Biggerstaff has been a regular attendee to the Suds’ cruiseins in Greenwood on Saturday nights for the past seven years. He and his good friends from Allisons always enjoy hooking up there. Years ago he owned a 1948 Ford hot rod that had a moment of fame with the folks working on the movie “Grease.” After selling that car he got into his current 1934 Ford fivewindow coupe. Dave did all the work himself, and it took him every bit of three years of dedicated love and labor.
The all-Fiberglas body sits on a custom frame weighing a mere 2,500 pounds, including the orange suicide knob. There is no air or heat, but the car does have wireless speakers that can play that beloved doo-wop music and handle iPhone calls. Because of the unique color scheme, Dave and his friends call his car Creamsicle.
He is continually upgrading his car’s engine and is currently running four-barrel carbs with tunnel ram dual quads. He has a 350 Chevy crate engine bored out to 355 cubic inches. The differential has gears in a 9-inch Ford rear end. So Dave appears to have the best components that Ford and Chevy have to offer. Dave can often be seen driving his car as it is also his daily driver. Until next time, happy cruisin’!
