Default Found a racecar in the woods

Well, I say we found it, but we did know that there were some cars out there before we took this walk. The property belongs to an older relative that we understand is preparing to liquidate. His daughter told us that she thought all that was out there was junk....might be a few pieces to make some yard art out of amongst this.











This car was apparently built by one of my dad's first cousins. (his name is above the door). Obviously it was put together long enough ago that it seemed like a good idea to turn a 2dr 55 Chevy into a dirt track car. Joe passed away from cancer about 5 years ago.

I'll add some more pics of what we found out there tomorrow.

Based on what others on here have "brought back to life," this should be doable!!!!

You need to get in touch with Mike Bell the historian at the Ga racing hall of fame. He might have pictures since it might have ran at Rome Speedway.
