No less a luminary than John Fitch cut his teeth in a re-chassised Hot Shot that was promptly dubbed 'The Fitch Bitch.'
this particular Crosley roadster set any records, or even competed in any races in the car. Having spent way too much time underneath a Hot Shot I'm pretty certain that this motor upgrade - looks like it's out of an XK120 Jag - would fold that frame up like it was made of tinfoil before it got into third gear.
Motor Life blog. We'll probably never know what happened to the car, but these photos are a fascinating glimpse into the days when Crosleys were just old cars to be fooled with. California plates mean that this was likely a rust-free car, probably only 10 or 15 years old when it was repurposed. I'd love to know what happened to that body in the garage!
