    I took a one year hiatus from working on this car. I built a 27 roadster pick up but with a 25 T turtle deck. The car is done except for building the turtle deck. I am back to working on the modified.. I cut out the 1/4 window surround and raised it up into the roof. I like to use SEM structual adhesive #747. Slow cure. The engine is done. I'm having Damon Detmer straighten 3 damaged injector bells. housing tubes. ..45jr...HOUDAILLE 007.JPG X-SHIFT,,,45JR,,,Bud 301 004.JPG

    Thank you for starting this post, it brings back fond memories from 43 years ago. Wally Jors operated a gas station on the corner of Court St. and Main St. in Fond du Lac, Wi. I worked part time for Wally evenings and weekends. I remember Wally as being very competitive but also a kind and caring friend.
    The picture of the #45 car, was that picture taken on North Main St. looking south? I see the name Fond du Lac on the car and in the distant background a Zephyr gas sign. I recall a Zephyr gas station on north Main.
    Thanks

    When I was in college in the fifties I built and maintained a Super for Jimmy Tabata and his driver Danny Przibrowski, both well known in the twin cities area. One night a week we raced at the Rice Lake, WI track but remember little other than it was a very dark and poorly lit. Have some paper photos but they have been buried for 60 years. Car was an advanced for the time 4 torsion bar CAE chassis set up.
