    I' m very proud to say that Russ Meeks put the suspension in my coupe back when it was just a show car and owned by its second creator Ben Sebastian of Everett Washington. I've spoken with Russ a couple of times about that. Modifications done just for show and not for go sometimes leave some wanting, but all and all what is under my coupe by Russ works like it was engineered to . :):):):):):)

    Oh Pee and Beaner, great thread. A bunch of great rides with a few stinkers thrown in to help show real talented ideas and builds.

    It's was definitely a very interesting car.
    It's a shame that it's no longer with us .
    It's a tragedy that it went the way it did.

    The Shoes knock it out of season but...hence the 60s...it was the Hotrod wave that never stopped...Unless one chose to stay behind...I'm glad some did...

    @rudestude was that a Wildfire loss?

    Yes was lost in the campfire in Paradise Ca.
    At the time it was just the body, the frame had been sold years ago , a new one was going to be built for it but it never happened.

    :rolleyes:...I always look at the big picture and the birth of Showrods...many times Drag Cars are professed to be purpose built...think about it ShowRod...A Hotrod that wows the masses at the Show just as it did at the races...and then theres that saying chrome doesn't win the race but there were Racer/Builders that built purposeful Jawdropping Monsters that garnered Trophies through competition everywhere they went Show and Race with undersides that you could eat off so...blah, blah, blah...Show & Go Wins the Race Many times...

    Anyone know what might have happened to this pickup? It was built by Ray Fahner after the Eclipse. 133648151_2913756262244167_2961605602949488156_n.jpg
