    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    Interesting use of 52 headlight rings on a 50 front end.

    this picture was taken in october this year. the strip is shannonville ontario. they have a nostalgia class points series i run in. the car has an all steel body although it is a round tube frame race chassis. the front and side glass are lexan but the back 4 panels are original to the car. the car runs only 1/8th mile due to the rear gear - 4.56. it has run a best of 7.12 @ 95 mph. it will be quicker next season as i am currently building a 406 sbc to replace the 355 in it now. it's all business inside. lol.003.jpg

    Welcome to the SDC Forum!

    I like your car. It is a Starlight, not a "starlite".

    No, Gary. It's whatever he wants it to be. It's also purple.
