    Great shots! Thanks to mikel50 for his contribution.

    What a weekend, eh muchachos??
    (I saw a pair of hot pants that said "Steve's Booty"- figured if I wore those and Steve had his $20 hooker shirt on, we'd make quite the couple on the boardwalk!)

    Disco on, Papa Ray!

    Don't know why but I'm just curious. What is the wheel base on that sweet little buggy?

    During the entire build the racer in me has wondered about traction with this thing. I appreciate the rules and period correctness more so but can't help but worry that their is some serious limitations here.

    Ray, thanks for stopping by Shep's and letting us check out your racer. That thing is even more amazing in person. I enjoyed meeting all you guys. Jim

    Great meeting you Jim. Wish we could have hung around all day. Hopefully Steven and I can make a visit together in the future. So much great stuff to see there.

    This car was never really meant to be a competitive racer . For me it is more of an exercise in building a car the way it would have been pieced together back in the day. Wheel base , tires and suspension or lack of are pretty accurate for cars that raced on the salt , and at board tracks from the late 20's through the early 40's.

    Have you scaled the car to see how much it weighs?

    Nope. It's light enough that one of my buddies picked up the back of it. I'd estimate 1000lb or so.

    Sounds like Josh?? LOL
    Now that the pressure is off ( somewhat) I've got to cruise up and check out your new garage- maybe see you and Jake at NED end of the month?

    Job well done my friend!

    As cool as your car is..... it's even cooler because you obviously drive the hell out of it. Thanks for that.

    Did you come home with it Ray ? I heard you had a few people interested in it at TROG.

    That is the dogs balls. You took junk and turned it into art.
