There have been a few episodes, but my favorite goes like this... One rainy night in 1983, my roommate and I were on our way home from a local sacramento bar. The Pine Cove was a favorite with college students because of the .50 drafts and 1.00 well drinks. No charge for the hair in your glass. We drove by the fairgrounds and noticed the gate was left open. We had seen an autocross there a few weeks before and thought, why not. We drove onto the course and spent the next 45 minutes sliding around in my ported RX3 laughing our asses off while we pretended to be rally drivers. It is amazing and very lucky we did not get caught. Good times.
Howdy, Brad and Chris I took a quick look for the Spaghetti Bender restoration article. I have lots of boxes of magazines, so it is not as simple as I thought. With that said, I did do an internet search and found some pics of the same car. It looks like its the company that did the restoration. Can't get a better source than that. Here is the link. http://www.precisionstreetrodsandmachines.com/Photo-Albums--1957-1966-.html If I have the time to sift through the boxes, i'll post in the reference section. Scott
Chris, I seem to recall that either Street Rodder or Drag Racing magazine did an article on the restoration of a Spaghetti Bender. If you want to I see if I can find it. Welcome aboard, Gary. The pics are great!
