Comments: This is what a lot of us miss when it comes to comparing today's racing to that from decades ago...  If you had an idea, you designed it, you built it, and then you raced it.   Sometimes it worked and sometimes... well..., it was back to the drawing board.   But like any good inventor will tell you, when you build something and it doesn't work, that just means that you are one step closer to that which will work.

Daring to be different by always running Ford power, long time Ford wrench Jim Lord created this long wheelbase car and gave it a try, but never quite found it to his liking.   Too bad, 'cause I think it looks cool as heck!
