I recently sold an old truck and had kinda been putting out feelers for an old car. I had a buddy at work tell me to go down the road a piece and check out this old car in a field...I wasn't expecting much, but I was shocked at how nice the car was and how reasonably it was priced. A deal was struck and the old guy and I stepped in his office so we could exchange the cash for the paperwork on the car. I was immediately struck by all of the old trophies that were lining his office. I made mention that "they don't build trophies like that anymore". The gentleman was more then happy to tell me some stories about where they had been won. Some were for racing and some were for show cars. This certificate really caught my eye! For those of you without your specs on it's dated 5-21-71, the track was Palmetto Drag strip, length 1/4 mile, class C/G, time was 10.94. No speed was listed. He said...that's when a man that knew what he was doing could go out and win...it wasn't about how much money you had. Here's a picture of the car he set the record in. The gentlemen I bought my car from is on the right. Kinda a poor shot...but I tried. Same car. Trophies in his office. Shot of a car that he wished he'd never sold... Vicky that he's been building for quite a while with Corvette suspension. I guess I hung around and chatted and listened to his racing stories for an hour or so. I've got no idea how old this guy is...but he's still twisting wrenches everyday making a living. He's the real deal guys. I consider myself lucky to have stumbled upon him. I may have made a good impression with him as well...I've already had two seperate people tell me that they tried to buy this car that I got from him. Both of them claimed to have offered more money and were turned away....I guess I was in the right place at the right time. Oh! Here's the car I bought from him. I think it still meets the deadline for HAMB approval doesn't it? Found this under the seat when I got home...Check out the phone #.
