Brian Brennan

Dennis Varni, a lifelong Bay Area hot rodder, is no stranger to the world of hot rodding . . . any part of it. He has tried the likes of Bonneville, vintage Mexican and European road racing, and, of course, the Grand National Roadster Show, wherein 1991 he won the pinnacle of rodding awards, the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster trophy. Considering those credentials, what has Dennis been up to lately? Look at this 1934 Ford three-window fenderless coupe, and you will get a good feel for where his rodding roots are taking him now. His garage is neatly parked with a handful of hot rods that came out of Rolling Bones Hot Rod Shop (RBHRS) in New York. Nowadays, Dennis is into hot rods with a nostalgic patina appearance and has come up with a handful of them from the watchful eye of the Rolling Bones crew.
