After Hanks death Leonard went to the shop and instructed Carl to save what he could but cut the rest up and haul it to the junk yard. Consideration was given to the roll bar but it was determined useless with the deep crease in the tube, evidence of the contact with wall. The car was cut up and hauled away. Several stories have been told of the event and the demise of Surdums chevy but it was hauled away. Carl was (and is )a super fabricator and was a solid driver on the CRA circuit in the 60's.
