After drooling on the Fibersport in the dark for a while I decided I'd better get my camp set up. I figured out where the bathrooms were and then set my tent up close enough that they would only be a short walk but far enough that I wouldn't be hearing flushing all night long. It was almost midnite by the time I'd gotten myself situated but I set my alarm for 6:30 anyway. I didn't need to bother - I was awake well before the alarm went off.
There are a lot of things you don't ever think you'll wake up to, and this was one of them. I zipped open my tent flap and this stars and stripes special was parked directly across from me. Even half asleep I recognized it immediately - it was the kooky Ebay Crosley I'd written about back in March. Believe it or not, it looked even wackier in person than in photos - and the new flag decal 'wrap' didn't make it any easier on the eyes.
my own mystery Hmod I'd discovered that a similar car had been restored and raced by a northern California hmod racer named Terry Matheny in the 1980s. He'd sold the car over 30 years ago but his widow had been kind enough to make copies of several photos she had of the car. I had been trying to find the car ever since but had hit a brick wall after one mention that it had raced at Lime Rock in 1991. Turns out the motor had blown at that race and it had been sitting ever since.
