In case anyone missed it, Hot Rod Magazine issue in January 2008 named the "Top 100 Most Influential Hot Rods of All Time" and the famous EMPI Inch Pincher came in at # 53!

For it to be included in a list of V8 American made cars is a feat in of itself.

But it finished ahead of such famous cars as Mickey Thompson's Challenger 1, Mooneyham & Sharp 34 Ford #554, Stone-Woods-Cooks & John Mazmanian's Willys drag cars,Craig Breedlove's Spirit of America that went 407 MPH for the land speed record.
I grew up reading about these cars in my dads car magazines!

Some famous hot rods to finish behind out little Aircooled race car! ;D

Nice to get some respect from the Hot Rod crowd
