    The 46 Ford as she looked when we got her, bathed in the light of day
    The coupe as she looked when I bought her. # 24 from Sioux City. Freshly washed, she looks shiny in the garage.

    The interior, much of the floor boards had to be removed and replaced.
    In the Backyard Racing shop at last. Ready for some real work.

    A "mock-up" 327 Chevy engine was used to locate the motor mounts. She had a six in her before, so we were starting from scratch here.
    The "real" 327, ready to go in her.

    The engine installed with headers. She just needed a carb, a distributor and some wires.
    Freshly painted, tires and wheels installed, waiting for lettering and the graphic.

    Lettered and numbered with the double-zero.
    The infamous "Devil Woman" painted by a local artist. Listen...she's talking to you!

    Racing at US 30 Speedway in Columbus, Ne. First night out with the car. She was fast but had fuel problems and did not finish.
    2nd time out was at Webster City, Iowa for the vintage reunion. She worked her way up to 4th but a power steering failure and my fatigue dropped her to 8th.

    3rd time out (season finale) at US 30 Speedway. She won her heat and the Abe Lincoln Memorial trophy dash. A flat tire kept her from the feature.
    The fruits of our labor.

    Tracy's car 89 build


    Tracy's coupe before painting, note the fabricated trunk. The trunk and reinforcement were sold before Tracy could buy the coupe.
    Another view before painting.

    Painting has began. Looks better already!
    It's mostly white!

    With numbers, a race car is born! This one had a stout little 283 Chevy in her.
    At the track in Beatrice, Ne. Dad is in the 89 car and Dan is in the #1 car. The 89 car handled real well, the auto trans didn't work right though. The car is for sale minus motor and trans. Tracy blew up the 283.
