Comments: Comment from Pete:  Favorite car.  Favorite year- 1974. This was built in the fall and winter of 1972. We built this one from scratch from two 1965 Ford 2 door sedan frame rails. The ford frame was pseudo 2x4. The rules then said that you had to use a car frame. (no tubing) The Ford frame was Jimmy Klim's idea..one of many good ones.  They didn't start using REAL 2x4 tubing until later.  It really was just a .060 327.

Over a year later, we finally got rewarded!   The problem with enjoying yourself that much is that you can't sustain it; then you miss it!
