congratulations to Joe S. on his Fairlane, beautiful picture.
On a recent trip thru Minneapolis I met up with an FE buddy and we were discussing the old days of drag racing over breakfast. He was telling how he used come down to Iowa and race at NEITA raceway (Cedar Falls) where I raced as a kid. I was telling him about this one really bad Pontiac wagon, that could launch like nobodies business. But for the life of me I could not remember the name of it, had a dealership sponsor on the side.
Well, I get home and get settled down, grab the new February issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines and open it up and just about fall outa my chair! There it is! NEMESIS II. Big and Bad as I remember it, what a shock. It was like the song "My Memory is the Centerfold".
So thrilled to read that somebody local had bought it and has restored it back to it's original glory. I can't wait to see her.
Also a nice story of American Graffiti that strikes pretty close to home.
