Another interisting car for me is on the right hand side of page 85 next to Paul Howards. I remember when I first saw that car at Sanford dragway in Maine in the late 50's. That's when I first met Sabie. The car had an early Lincoln over heads in it, when Lincoln first came out with OHead around 51-52. The next time I saw the car was in the early 80's and Sabie had put a flathead in it. The last time I saw it was in the late 80's at Sugarloaf ski resort in central Me. I can still see old Sabie crawling out of that roadster after a long ride from MA to Sugarloaf Me. I always loved that car. Walt

Sabie's car recently went thru a complete rebuild, done by John Persson in Walpole, MA. It's a real time machine.

Thanks for posting about the SR article.

Thanks Danny. I knew you'd like Jeff's PU. You should hear that thing run! "Almost" made me want a hemi, instead of a flathead. Not quite, but close.

Got magazine the other day (after 1st post above). Didn't know if I was getting as I let my subscription lapse, after receiving about 7 mailings. Two weeks ago I get another mailing offering me street rodder AND rod & custom (also let it lapse) for $17!!!!SEVENTEEN dollars for BOTH. Substantial savings. Not the magazine (SR) it was 7-10 yrs ago though.. Gotta love the "little" books.
Nice to see "barners" in print.
