    I saw "Tension" today and visited with the owner. He actually got it bought out of that pasture near Soldier, IA and has it restored as it raced. It is now in Denison, IA.

    Here's a picture of the restored Tension car.

    The correct spelling is "Neja." Your spelling would be phonetically correct if the last "n" is dropped.

    My father sold the car back in 1985 or so. I think I still have the contact info for him. The guy who bought it did another restore on it and seems like he exhibition raced it some. Stock looking with no stickers or graphics.

    Why do you say that? Because of the helmet? I wondered about that.

    I went to school with Steve. He was a modified eliminator guy.
     
  20. That would be post # 9270 on page 309 (2012) if anyone is looking for it.

    Not exhibition but Nostalgia Super/Stock. Gene something? out of Cincinnati.
    Also, I believe Travis Miller was involved with that car somehow.

    The N.H.R.A. 15 year rule killed of the one the best group of classes they ever had.

    How could they have been this stupid to kill off such a popular group of drag racers.

He and Ted Harbit were long time pals. Fred raced a Studebaker like Teds in the early years and later had 427 Ford Galaxies and Fairlanes. His son and grandson now race the Fords that Fred Built.
