    In 1976 I had just finished the first rebuild of my Cyclone, Boss 302 engine, 9” rear end, etc. I wrote a letter (long before email!)
    to Jack Chrisman asking him about Comet parts. I received the letter attached below with a list of available parts, (dumb me did not buy them) and a photo of him and his famous A/FX Comet. The picture hangs on the wall of my shop, the letter is in with my valuable collectibles.
    I have another story to share about the Tom Coward A/FX Comet in an upcoming post.

    I noticed the Oregon license plate. Do you have any details on the car?
