That did not take long. One of the last things I did when I was doing customer work was build the bottom 12 inches of a 41 (?) Hollywood. doors, inner and outer, lower deck lid, rear roll pan. rockers, Etc. I was trying to stay away from customer work and agreed to do it if I could make the panels and tack the assembly together to show it all fit. He was to take the body shell and have the finish welding and body work done. I could not believe the amount of lead that went into building those things. 40's Lincoln Continentals were also practically sculpted out of lead.

You have the floor 496CHEVY3100.

That is a 1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt was a concept car. It had a inline 8 and a fluid couple transmission. Five were built, four exist today. It was Chrysler's answer to the Y-Job.

I'm going to rephrase this question.
How did the phrase "Pit Stop" originate in auto racing?

Before hoists were commonplace there were pits dug in the ground to access the underside of cars, a pit. I'm assuming that early race tracks could have had these pits for easy access under the cars, the pits. So, when the cars stopped it could have been an easy jump to reference that stop as stopping at the pits, a pit stop.

Places such as Jiffy Lube still use a form of a pit but it is more of a full basement with ventilation. The small pits that were basically a hole in the ground constructed of cement had problems with fumes accumulating in them or so I understand.

You are on the right track but not quite the answer I'm looking for. How did it pertain to a race?
