I built this car , a long time ago. I was 17 years old and my dad dropped me off at Lloyd Shores" shop in Avon , Indiana on a Friday afternoon , around 2 o'clock . Lloyd welded up the frame.

First guy I see is Eddie Levitt, with a 12 back of beer in his arm. Eddie asked,"Hey kid, want a beer?!" Told him no, I was working. I had to have the car finished by early Sunday morning to make Eldora for hot laps. Never made it though. We ran out of hose to plumb the car early Saturday evening.

I was one lucky kid growing up. I got to met some of the best of the best, those really were the good old days.

Check out all the sponsors on that thing. Duke used to make it by getting a lot of smaller sponsorships. When he ran at IRP, he'd send in an entry blank with so many sponsors on it I'd have trouble getting all of them on the program insert.
