    "I ran a marathon yesterday through a local rural area and was thinking the same thing, every farm had a barn or set of sheds that just had to have something in at least some of them!"


    I did the same thing, only I was driving not running. I find running tedious after the first two or three steps.

    Perhaps I can help with some questions about this car and its history... I hope. 52 years is a long time to remember.

    crf500 - I'm guessing that the car is still owned by the same fellow who showed it to me back in 2002?

    i remember seeing the car in the first picture at the cam twisters show in joplin--i don't believe it was glass--talked to the owner with my friend who was building one out of the front of a dodge touring car--doesn't seem like the same car --may just be to ragged out for me to tell--seemed like a very nice build at the time--blue wasn't it?

    so, does Speedy Bill have it or not? Hard to believe it was used in a recent ad if it was ensconced in that garage for so many years. Is there a paper trail back to Fahrner?

    The Speedy bill ad was from back in the day... It was parked in front of the old Speedway location.

    George Barns is still active on T bucket sites- he does some great CAD plans for parts.
