    Very clever! Prep the primer with the scratches. 
    Thanks, Bill!

    It does look good in red. This was a nostalgia build for me. I fell apart during my last move.

    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.

    This weekend I got to go for a ride in my Brother's Maseratti Quatro Port.   
    From the bottom of the on ramp, we were at 90 by the freeway and 102 a second after that.

    I would like to know too. I followed this build. But I can't remember the process you used.

    Just turned in my last final for this semester. Two weeks until I start again. Still half a week off from work too. Maybe I'll hit the bench after I hit the yard.

    Just looked on E-bay. Nothing today. This is very high on the wish list for me. May even get two.

    I REALLY like where this is going. Where did you get the tracks?

    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.

    If I have the time to sift through the boxes, i'll post in the reference section.

    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!

    Michael,
    Your Bantam build was a great thread. The final product came out great. I'll be watching!

    I built these when I was a kid. I had to replace them as an adult.
