    The black Hart car is still complete. I sold Gordon Crowe the body he has on his car now that just wrecked. I dont think his car is the one your looking for though.

    I did some work for Chuck and would often help out in the shop. I'm not aware of him putting any 33 in a wall, but he did wreck one in Milan MI.

    Gordon Crowe first debuted his car in 2003 or 2004. In 04 or 05, he was racing at (I think) Beaver Springs, and the parachute line got caught on the wheelie bar, pulled the car around, and it barrel rolled several times, doing some pretty extensive damage to the car. After a few years, Gordon was able to put the car back together, and came out again in either late 2009 or 2010. He made some great runs, and even managed an 8.28 in the car, late 2010. A few weeks ago, he broke an axle at Buffalo, and wrecked the car again. I don't think the damage was quite as extensive this time, as I've heard he hopes to have it back out this upcoming spring. I don't know if his car was a Finders Body originally, but it's the only one I know of that seems to match your description.

  13. I am the owner of the Hart Car. There is a clone out there, but not the original. There were other cars that Hart Automotive sponsored, a gold one comes to mind.

  17. The front clip came from me, it was a spare that Ron Wilson had picked up years ago to replace the one on the front of Pure Determination because of all the modifications through the years.

    Gordon fixed his chassis and put the body I sold him on it. You probably do have the first body.

    Sounds like my old body, it was an original Cal Auto body that was never mounted, still had the wood floor and firewall in when I got it, The rest, front end , doors was all generic stuff from around this area I picked up. I think there was a sticker laminated under the cowel area that said Cal Auto, but I'm alittle fuzzy on that. even had wood around the rear window but that had to go for the roll cage. If you have any more questions please call me up. Gordon
