That's pure hot rod boys. I bet there's a pretty good power-to weight ratio.

That car belongs to one of Pat's family members, I think it's his father-in-laws.

That car certainly caught my eye. My favorite part? The Taillights. I think they were 37 chrysler?

Wow< I can see right now that I am going to have to print out those photos to help one of my projects along inspiration wise. That car definetly has lots of great ideas to help with planning my two seater along similar lines.

Ryan, thank you, now if that's not inspiration, I don't know what is! I gather from hop-up it's new, although the other online mag caption says 'vintage lakes racer'... I'd love to know the story behind it as well!

Unclee said he saw "Miller" on the motor somewhere. I asked the man who built it what it was, he said I had to guess. I also asked if he was a machinist, he laughed and said he was a telephone man!
