Lon Sr.'s car after the race day. The body looks great and seemed to work just fine. I suggested he turn that body into shelf eye candy and I think he has done that. I think the body came from John Fong and he had it painted by his brother or something many moons ago.

That is a nice color scheme! What body is that? I like the fact that the cooling head has roughly the same color as the grey stripes. (at least it seems so on the pic). Are the white stripes trim tapes?

It looks to me that it's a Parma Ossella PA9 body from the late 80's

Looks like I'll be able to make the race on the 3rd after all up in Toledo. I'll be running the Edam for qualifying at least in prep for the next series race, but I'll have the pan up there and I'll either pull double duty or a friend of mine will drive but either way, it's one more for pan. All I have to do now is get off my rear and get a body ordered up that actually fits a Super J.....

i don't know the proper name but it's the bearing that allows the t plate too move.
