Default The Wedgewood Special

Damn, that is a cool car! Very nice.

But dug it out of where? That garage looks a bit full. Too nice to be leaving outside.

great car. it is a copy of a very old speedster featured in the fast ford hand book. he has a ruxstel and a warford if memory serves. also running a 3:1 r/p.

The head is a Neal Jearn chevy conversion.

as a few can attest 80 mph on 30x 3 1/2's is a hell of a lot of fun.

That's a fantastic speedster- great proprtions on the body, just enough on the dash, and it sits great on those 30's. VERY well-built!

Man, I need to get off my duff (and find the 25th hour in the day) and get going on mine- thanks for the inspiration Jive-Bomber!
