custom pedal cars info

The Salt Lake Autorama screwed over UVU last year, The college paid for 3 booth spaces IN A ROW for their display. When they showed up they were assigned TWO spaces about 40 feet apart. They didn't get their money back or their 3 paid for spaces so this year they stayed home. UVU Auto scholarship Fund sponsors Utah's largest swap meet and car show in May. I plan on being there in May and asking more questions, Mabe some Picts of this years pedal cars.

it will go to the alignment shop for the rest

i might have gained a little bit by raising the front end 3/4" at the shocks, but i dont think i gained that much toe.

i am thinking, that between the bad upper LH balljoint and that much toe in, would help explain part of the reason, why the steering was so sensitive/twitchy at hwy speeds.

We're awaiting the return of the frame so we can paint it and beging the suspension assembly.


Tomorrow, we travel to Burlington, NC to retrieve the body for our project from Caroilina Chem-Strip. This is how it looked on the trip down with three coats of paint and lots of body filler and undercoating.

Oh HELL YEAH!
