Des Moines, IA
1952 Kaiser-Frazer Henry J.

The Henry J. was purchased by Angela’s father, Steve Petraline, on eBay. It arrived with 2 loose bucket seats in front and was basically a shell with primer on it. Her dad and a friend restored and modified it for drag racing. Unfortunately, Angela’s dad passed away from cancer before he could take it to race, and the car came to live with her. She uses it for photo shoots for her vintage clothing business and take it to shows and short rides, but no drag races yet!
