since I posted these pics in '08, absolutely nothing has happened with this car. I finally decided that in order to actually drive it, I was going to have to hire out some of the work needed to complete the project. Last week I took the bug to Bryan at LateNightAirCooled in Chico, CA. Hopefully these guys can breath some life into it. I'll post as progress is made.

Re: OK, here it is

Ok, Clint you should have never put up photos!!

It will only increase the harassment your going to get I am sure. Any of us that had a car that nice sitting in the garage would be dying to drive it!

If you need help a handful of us have already offered to come help.

If money is tight we all understand that, but does that mean your not spending it on your planes either?

(busting balls I know, sorry) Just get it driving, you know you will enjoy it when you do!!

All this harassment meant in good fun!

No Greg, not the same car. If memory serves, the car in your pic belonged to Ted Lewis, a friend of ours up here. Clint borrowed the car to make a couple NASA races. Clint picked his 61 up about 7 years ago from a fella up near Oroville. He has some pics he took when he first got it--- and if he posted those, you'd really see just how much work, time, and money has been spent on the thing and you people would be even MORE irritated. ;) Its a show car. Its a non-running, ultra-expensive, garage-sitting, dust-collecting, damn-near-finished show car.

Re: OK, here it is

So I was surfing on Newk's site and cam across this photo



Clint is this right, the photo says April 2006? And your going to try and make the May BOR.

Which May BOR was that?

Come on dude, gotta drive that thing!!

All the lube is trying up and hardening inside as I type! ;)

Re: OK, here it is

Hey! I can see Clint's pics now! YAY!

Brian, guess how much different that motor looks today? Yup.... you guessed it....... NO DIFFERENT, except for the background. Instead of Newk's garage wall behind the motor, now you'd see Clint's.
