    Salinas Hi-Timers club car....built in 1954. It originally ran a 302 Jimmy inline with a Howard 5x2 intake which I have and someday will install it when I find the right parts. I took it out because Juke Joint Johnny is ltaking it to L.A. to be in the Deuce of Spades movie drag episode for a prop...should be a fun deal.quote=wannaB;3157941]Very cool, Mark.

    Built by Jess Hernandez he worked at the Sprekles Sugar plant as a mechanic fabricator, his wife told me he would make parts at work for the dragster. I guess you would say it is sponsered by Sprekles.
