Acme Speed Shop 1936 Cabriolet Chop & Carson Top Build
In 2011 the Martinez Industries, Co and Acme Speed Shop Cabriolet 'saga' began. John Mearns, owner of Acme Speed Shop, brought the Cabriolet to the Gardena shop for the top to be chopped as well as a hand built one of a kind 'Carson Top.' The carson top is one of a kind with a zippered rear window.
We also did a minor repair to a fender with a 'dent.'
Little did David know but this was just the begining for the work on the Acme Cabriolet. Just a year later 'Round Two' began on the car, landing a six-page spread in Rod & Custom Magazine. Both sets of work can be seen on slideshows on this website.
We give you...... Round One!
