IF IT DON'T GO, CHROME IT! When racers came up with this old saying, they didn't take John Siroonian's beautiful race cars into account. John not only had some of the most beautiful race cars of the era but also some of the fastest. In addition, his drivers were a who's who list of the best such as in 1981 with Bubby Jones and Ron Shuman, both inductees into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.
This beautiful #1x Western Ag sponsored car carried Ron Shuman to five California Racing Association main event wins plus numerous other qualifying races during the 1981 racing season. John was very successful in his business endeavors, i.e., Western Wheel and Western Ag for example, as well as in the numerous forms of racing he was involved in. In addition, his collection of early Fords was as extensive as it was beautiful.
