Website contributor Dave Norton rebuilt
this car in 1965.
|From Dave: "I got my Novice license
in the car, and sold it to a dentist (Gerry Pacheco) in the Bay area.
Here he is, at 'Seca in '65 or '66."
"I'd appreciate anyone's comments as
to the history of the car before and after my part in it. We called
it the Silver Slow and Pacheco named it the Short Ribs Spl."
|From Dave: "I bought a basket
case for $600: and my high school buddy Russ Miller and I rebodied it with
tin snips, a drill, and pop rivets. We didn't know we didn't know
enough to do it so we did it. Power was a stock NSU Prinz, 600cc, about

|The little car in the pits at Cotati.
From Dave: "In the Cotati race
we (Pacheco and the car) finished 6th but beat our local (Orange CA) nemesis
Bob Snow (who DNFd). Russ and I were impressed and amazed to watch
Snow throw a bunch of chalk lines on the floor of his shop, cut tubes to
match, hot glue them together into a chassis, stick his Crosley motor in
and have a competitive race car in about 2 weeks!"
