The ’32 Hi-boy Roadster built by volunteers in collaboration with L.A. Roadsters, along with students at the Alex Xydias Center for Automotive Arts (AXC), was auctioned at last week’s Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction for $105,000.

Built as a tribute to the ’32 Roadster that West Coast hot-rodding pioneer Bob McGee created in 1947, proceeds from the sale of Hi-boy benefit the Alex Xydias Center for Automotive Arts—a two-year program that provides students the hands-on training required to enter the automotive industry.
