    I've had this 8x10 picture of Elby's Willys coupe at Fremont for decades.
    Then somebody else sent me another shot of it, anybody recognize the car?

    It may well be. Here is a short video of the restored car and a lot of features (wheels, rear fender lips etc match).

    That's it Roo.
    Dave Lamb from NJ owns it and I believe it's currently for sale.
    Guess you already know it was Bill Linder's car from Rochester NY,
    looks like it did in 1967 all over again,

    I guess some of you here knew [the late] Byron Stack from Gas F/X.
    Born the same year as I, he sadly passed away in 2012.
    He came to visit me in 2008, a big fella, I even got to squeeze him into my little pickup.
    He won't soon be forgotten,

    going down the quarter mile at Thompson years ago...have another picture of this from the stands that show Byron taking this shot (will look for it) g-willys whitewillys2 (4).jpg
     
  23. Here's a look-alike coupe that Greg G. and Al Tschida put together just a few years before Al passed away.
    Al's cars usually had that distinctive home made air scoup. g-willys Tschida-2 (1).jpg
