Sometimes life turns south. I'm having to put the Flyin' Brick II up for sale, so here 'tis. Far too many details to go into in a post, so here's the condensed version and a bunch of links to more info.

She's a seriously fun "rowing" car that was the first HA/GR on the west coast, and was instrumental in kicking off two dirivitave classes as well. She runs mid 12s in the 1/4 (best 12.424 @ 101.67), and tall 7s in the 1/8 (best 7.886 @ 88.96). These were in '18, as I've only run small 1/8 mi. meets without times since, but by (well over 50 years of :roll: ) butt feel she's still up there or slightly better.

History: She's the only HAMBster to take Open Wheel trophies at Butch's meets, and has five wins in Open Comp at Forever Four's Antique Nat's. Has won our HA/GR trophy at Eagle Field four times, and Carl's Flatheads & Inliners Clash there as well. Throw in a couple Mopar show awards and a few magazine articles, and she gets recognized regularly.

Here're some pic links of her builds, in all three iterations.
The first version, tribute to early midis, and Red Case's in particular.
The second version, added a '24 Overland tub body in a nod to comp roadsters in general, and the Bean Bandits in particular.
The final version, with respect to the Midnite Oil Special.

And some meet video links, mostly ANRA, Barona and of course Eagle Field.

Questions: 323-5079721 (non texting phone).
