  3. I love the lip detail around the nose. That makes the body look so professional. It's the little things. I can't imagine driving it (not that I would fit) with that rear end between my legs. Ouch!

    Beautiful car. I'd like to see more articles about these vintage drag racers.

    At 6' 3" it's a tight fit in there, even more so with the canopy on. I've loved this car ever since reading @Ryan's article in Jalopy Journal #3. So when I saw it, I knew I had to ask if I could try it on for size... 11913878_10207520207146831_5672178200235964632_n.jpg

    Very cool. Amazing how small the hotrod world is at times.

    That’s one slippery lookn’ beast! Of course I’m grooving on the mini Covico wheel, too.

    Cool piece of history. Ed had a lot of cool stuff. When I lived in the Bay Area, my brother and I would head over to his place in Richmond pretty often. Bought lots of parts from Ed.
