The Dousset family have owned several cool hot rods throughout the years and while she enjoyed cruising around rod runs with her sisters, in 2010 Megan decided it was time to finally get a hot rod of her own on the road.

“Seeing Sarah and Clare cruising in their own roadsters around Valla, I was like, yep, I definitely want my own roadster.
