DAMN I love stuff like that. I want to buy a ticket, really, what would it cost? Put that thing down here at Sears point raceway Sonoma Raceway and charge for rides, how much? How much is it going to cost me so I can start saving up my mad money! DAMN that must be wild!

I first saw this car at the Indy museum in Indianapolis and recently on loan to the LeMay in Tacoma. It's the Hurst Shifter Special built by Smoky Yunick and driven at Indy in 1964 by Bobby Jones. It crashed in practice and never made the race. Pretty neat!!

She has never driven but frequently will go with me to some of the local cruise ins or maybe the NATS South. She is a NASCAR fan. My family did not have much money when I was young so I got more involved in custom cars than performance cars. I had a brother that was 6 years older who had a '49 Merc with a 392 Chrysler Hemi in it. He probably influenced me more than anyone. All you performance guys like a light post body and I always wanted a dropped, nosed and decked, hardtop to go cruising in.

We are probably getting off topic but to me the fun is hanging with the gang. I have no desire to compete for a trophy. Winning a trophy is, of course, a compliment but not the reason behind building the car.

Back to trivia.
