<!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <woNotOptimizeForBrowser/> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--> I have had a few threads with a reoccurring them over the last year or so, Dealing with a over abundance of project cars and a ticking clock, eventually you have to decide what to keep, and what to let go of...... Problem is, every car left in the barn and the shop has a "special" History or story to it. And deciding what to let go of is difficult. I have a two time NHRA National Champion B/SR, The Blue Racer #424. It won the NHRA 1964 US Nationals in Indy,.. and then again the 1966 NHRA Spring Nationals in Bristol.And most of the information was uncovered by Dave Crain and right here on the HAMB. This car is actually responsible for bringing me back to the HAMB as a contributing member, It was the seed that brought me to a lot of lasting friendships, As well as some sparring matches on this sight. It was exciting uncovering it's history as well as Hot Rod Magazine tracking me down to include it in there "Barn Finds Issue" And meeting the original owner builder. Well,..... I have a few cars on the "Bucket List" I would like to finish before I assume room temperature, BUT ! This is the most historically significant car I own, And as much as I would love to finish this car, And reunite it with it's NHRA History for all time, And for others to see and enjoy... I'm slowing down some, So it just makes sense for somebody else to take it across the finish line. The other cars I want to finish are of less importance historically to the rest of the World,... But have very personal history with me... So here I am at a cross road,... There is a path a number of cars are going to be going down As they leave my possession, And a few that will have to be sold after Ol' Harms Way is nothing but a memory.... But I'm having a difficult time turning "The Blue Racer" over to somebody else... Although I know it's the right thing to do...... What do you think my friends ?,.... Does this sound like a logical path to take?....... Below are some of the Threads here on the HAMB the old Blue Racer has inspired..... And Thanks for letting me ramble....... "The Blue Racer" B/SR #424 "A" Roadster Loren McCombs reunited with his "Blue Racer" after 41 years Thank You HAMB and Hot Rod Magazine !
