    Greetings from BC Canada. I started with a slightly customized 47 Monarch coupe with an Olds engine which, by the way, I would really like to find again. I traded it for a '57 Chevy 2-door wagon to run in E/MP. I spent much of the next few years ducking shrapnel as I learned a little about building small block chevys. From here I got into a '51 Prefect called "Compulsion", which explains the clever pseudonym used here. After a number of years two things became obvious; first I was never going to set the E/G record and second, bracket racing (socialistic drag racing, as a buddy calls it) was taking over the sport. I put the Prefect to pasture and got into a C/Fuel dragster. I set the AHRA record and sold the car to a couple in Spokane. I think Bucky Austin has it now but, I'm not sure. In 2000 I resurrected the Prefect, completely restored it and installed a not quite stock 454. My son and I now run it in Kelowna and Ascroft. I am now trying to build a '35 Dodge 4-door street rod.
