Is the strip that you run at the same one where your dad raced?

Greg, the photos remind me of one of my grandson's favorite animated movies, "Cars". One of the background car characters in the movie was once a competitor loud and proud. With the passing of years he is now more serene, but still has that inner strength and satisfaction of having been a good quality competitor. Today it's this car that reminds me the builder's spirit and depth of character made the car a competitor in it's day. I (we?) get nostalgic seeing the car today, but in that nostalgia I also feel great respect for the person that put in the effort to make it happen in his day. Best wishes to your Dad.

@ John..

Yes he raced at 2 local tracks.. one is shopping complex or abandoned now.... the other has been in operation since 1968.

@ Louise76... Thanks.. It is kind of neat to see old stuff like that.. My dad has plenty... Lots of stuff he bought or was interested in for 5-10 years at a time when he was 19-65 years old...
Now he doesn't have much interest in that stuff.

Greg

I had Mondello make a head in the early 70s. He was thought to be state of the art then. I sent him the valves and he started with a new head, I think the whole thing only cost $300. I went low 12s with it in a very light car.
