Bought the car for the engine and transmission but am going to build a track car with the frame and extra parts. I have a 1925 Speedster at present but it's more of a rally/touring car that dirt track racer. I know that the '26 and up cars are not the most desirable to use but this will be just a fun track only car. The engine and trans are newly rebuilt and the rest of the car was free. I'm driving my current speedster pretty hard and although it has not given me a stitch of trouble...... I have no idea how to reduce the pictures any further to stay under the 250KB limit but can post other pictures if needed.

Doug
I'm also working on one for next year as well. I believe there are a number of these being built. Potentially 6 events planned

Doug
To reduce pictures I take with my iPhone, I email them to myself in a reduced size and then use those. Hope this helps

I believe the upside down and sideways picture thing happens with mobile devices. I've never encountered it with camera photos.

That photo of #14 in action absolutely kills. What a great shot!

Smoking ended many years ago but I like it!
My plan is to strip it bare and have a light track car. Like these. These fella's that I raced with this summer are true gentleman and as a relatively new comer to the group, made me feel right at home.
Like this one.

I am lucky to have a good friend down here in Medicine Hat named Fred Holt. He has a whole private collection that is simply amazing. He has always great advise and has rebuilt the transmission in #14 for me. He and Terri always have coffee on and always make time for a few stories.
