Jack was one of the TRUE innovators of early Go Fast Stuff. Having Mercury and Kendall on his side gave him a lot of room to play.

Although this is my favorite, I always thought, "Hmmmmmm, rounded windshield with a shoebox nose. An aerodynamic contradiction." But, then again, no spoilers or zoomies at that time.

Have some fun with this one.

Yes, he and his brother Art where quite clever.  As you probably know, this car wasn't around very long as it was destroyed at the '66 Super Stock Nationals.

Funny how the younger folks, or those with shorter memories, are so shocked to hear that the so-called "off-brand" cars were so successful on the tracks, as well as on the streets. Great to see someone with some interest in doing one! Would love to see some pics when you finish!
