Those were California cars, most I remember were from the 80's. Don Tognotti I think was the name. They may be building street rods out there.

They were made from the late 70's to the late 90's. A lot of them were made by the Paulson Brothers out of Woodland CA. They made them for Tognotti for years.

I think some of the older cars may have been made by Bob Trostle - ?

Tognotti started building cars in the middle 70's. They were a Trostle copy in fact they nicknamed Tognotti's Trostle West. Started building there own car in 1978 with Rick Ferkel.

the first 6 Tognottis were Trostles. Soon after they started building chassis. The first two Gamblers for CK Spurlock were also Trostles. Soon after, they started building chassis. Bob doesn't get the credit he deserves for the ideas and inovation he brought to the sport. Kept a lot of low buck racers racing by repairing cars and parts and pieces.

I have seen a picture of six new Trostle chassis's loaded and ready to ship to Tognotti.

Doublenuttin is correct Bob will never get the credit he deserves.

CK's cars were Trostle copies, built in the back of a NAPA store in Tenn. Shane Carson had a hand in helping out. When it was time to go to the race at the Bowl, the names Carson and Trostle were out. It was now(Dub?) May and Gambler.

The first cars were built by a company called California Cycle Works,the picture in the above post was taken behind the shop on Auburn Blvd.I Had a great times working there and building those cars,some of my fondest memories were being able to travel with Rick and Jimmy when they came out west.

Hi Norcal,


Where could I get a 1978 Tognotti Sprint chassis? I want to make a street legal car and restore it like Ferkel's O car.

Any ideas who may still have something?


Thanks,
