For several years Iíve had a urge to get back in a faster car, after 10 yrs., in a slower Stock Eliminator ride. I had a Roadster in mind for a while. Always liked them, several friends had them over the years. So I found one, had a good friend go put eyes on it. Turned out good, so we got a price worked out, and did the deal. Spent a week trying to get a transport company to bring it to me from outside Chitown, to Atlanta area. Nobody wanted to do it because it was a roller, and didnít crank and drive up in or on trailer. Lessons learned there.
So I said screw itís, and took off to Chitown. Long day up, crashed at my buddies house, with it on trailer. So now, finally, Iíve got one.

Being me, Iíve got to go thru it from end to end, and start over....

Looks like fun! You wouldn't want a transporter to start the motor in a race car anyway, or allow them to move it under power.
