    Thanks for clarifying up some of the history on the dragster. Is there any old photos of the car from back in the day?

    I feel pretty honored to have drove the car...it would be pretty cool to see it run again. Im sure my dad would help anyway he could.

    Just wanted to share a few of the cars my uncle Kevin has built for himself over the years. He is the family body man/painter. I am in the process of putting his collection now.

    Check out the Lofer Speed Shop Shirt.

    The coupe was a little bad ass and was always good for a show.

    Not sure if it stayed around town. He had that car the same period that my dad had old blue and that car stayed in Watertown for years.

    I will find out....

    Some good classics. I think its Hot Rods that have kept these three brothers best friends over the years.

  10. Does Kevin still have that 30's Chevy big truck used in the summer for his body shop business? He's the one that had the old Sinclair station on the edge of town isn't he?

    Great thread with some awesome pictures! The best part of the garage tour at Vintiques is definitely wandering around Randy's shop! Looking forward to seeing more pictures.

    No the 35 Chevy 1ton got wrecked. A person pulled out in front of Kevin on his way back into town with his trailer on back. He bought the truck back from the insurance company, repaired it and sold it over seas.

    kevin hauls his trailer with a refurbished Schwann's Truck now. Still Propane power. I will post some pics of the truck soon....

    Where photos of that dragster are concerned, there's no such thing as "crappy".
    Thanks for throwing 'em up, very cool!
