�Lucky Betty� owned by Betty La Foy
Starting out in the summer of 1959 from Porter, Indiana, �Lucky� Betty La Foy and her all female stunt crew took their daredevil show across America, driving jalopies�through rings of fire, jumping motorbikes over school buses and escaping certain death�many times over. And if that wasn�t dangerous enough, Betty�s pi�ce de r�sistance was to�ride the Wall of Death on a modified ex �Wrecking Crew� Indian Scout motorbike while�playing rock n roll hits on her custom made electric guitar. Betty had a red version for�week day shows, and a white one for Sunday best.
After 40 years of dropping the jaws of audiences worldwide and without ever�having a single stunt go wrong, Betty decided to quit before her luck ran out. She�currently lives a quieter life on the Florida Keys with her devoted husband, Big Al. At 79�she still drives her hot rodded 1934 Ford Model 40 V8 Coupe every day and is the oldest�Floridian resident ever to receive a speeding ticket, shooting 73 mph in a 50 zone.
Body: Double-cut, super resonant American Alder body with custom �Lucky Betty��graphics and go faster binding. A Red version for the weekday and a White one for�Sunday best.
