Lou Baney was a mechanic at Ansen Automotive Engineering, treasurer and president of Rusetta Timing Association, and a member of the board of directors and vice president for the American Hot Rod Conference. Lou was also a member of the L.A. Gophers Car Club. At the age of 19 Lou built his first hot rod, a 1932 Ford V8 Roadster, that he frequently raced at Carrel Speedway against such future big-name racers as Jack McGrath and Andy Linden. Baney built and drove the first coupes ever to exceed the speeds of 125, 130, and 135 mph.
