Shook his hand and had brief conversation, all at a small car show in Southern Illinois on July 2nd. :headbang:

I was in my 87 GN, got a top 20 plaque. Buddy took best of show with a magnificent 1950 chopped and slammed Mercury and another Ingersoll; his brother I suspect, took home a trophy for his 1949 Mercury. Both cars were absolutley top notch.

Just had to share. :cheers:

And I bet you haven't washed it(your hand) since. :wedge:

I wonder if those Mercs were geniune or one of the fiberglass kits that are out now? IIRC they use a GM B-body frame.

Wicked! So, was he a very talkative guy? Did he let you in on any little speed secrets?

Someday I hope to meet Nasty Wendy! :6:

I don't know how to answer that, I did not talk to him for very long. I also did not probe him for advice on speed. I'm happy with what I have now and do not intend to race my car, I would rather keep it simple and keep it clean with low mileage.
