I found this on another site: (the words are not mine) "The guy standing next to the car is the builder, Ron Logghe. If you're in to drag racing and are over 40 you've probably heard of him. You can read some about him here http://timoszykfunnycars.com/ftroop.html and here http://www.mmshof.org/inductees/Logghe_Brothers.html . He's an engineer, machinist and legendary race car builder. The list of people he's built cars for is a who's who of drag racing legends, along with a lot of innovations he brought to racing. First flip top funny car, introduced coil-overs to drag racing chassis design. Their family business is Logghe Stamping, still in business in Michigan, one of the last remaining American suppliers to the Detriot auto industry. This car was his senior project for the Art Institute where he received his degree before joining the family business. My girlfriend and I just bought a house and after getting settled in we decided to invite the next door neighbors over for dinner. Guess who? Ron is still a full gear head, but due to Parkinson's he has great difficulty speaking. With his wife helping out though, we did gab a lot about racing and car building. During a tour of his shop and garage he whipped out this picture. I was blown away. He designed and built everything, chassis, suspension, body molds and fiberglass body. All in 1957. He sold the car ages ago, before anyone was in to collecting stuff like they do now. No idea where it is but it would be an incredible barn find."
