    In search of speed by trimming weight some folks drill axles, Model-A visors, fenders and such. Some remove body parts all together.
    Some folks, well, they do this. I took these pics in Daytona a few years back, it was in the swap area. Great conversation piece! IMG_2606.JPG IMG_2607.JPG IMG_2608.JPG IMG_2609.JPG

    Paint it flat black and race it at night, probably hardly noticeable, haha.

    That's really cool. Got some neat circle track parts on it.
    I would try to restore it to as raced condition.

    Tudy Adkins or Atkins coupe, raced in the Mid Ohio Valley in the late '50' to mid '60's. Was part of a huge collection of vintage coupes and Sprinters in the Dayton Ohio region. We drove past the place once on our way to Dayton with a broken car, and that coupe was outside, front and center. The collection's caretaker died, and ALL of the cars were sold, with many being sold that were unfortunately, only on loan.
