I purchased an old gasser about a year ago. Two weeks ago I drug it out of the back yard and started a crazy attempt to preserve history. It originally ran a 413 and hed spindle extensions. Scary suspension. I went with a 440 and a straight axle with disc brakes for saftey. Everything else is exactly as it was. I am taking it to its first show tonight at the Pavillions shopping mall in Scottsdale AZ. Come take a look if you are around.

The odd rod garage.

Hi Pete,
That's a cool piece of history; glad to see you're keeping the patina. Have fun at the car show and take lots of photos to share.
Welcome to the forum.

What a great old gasser, and a very cool body style! Would love to see more of it if you have time to post more pictures! At least those of us far away can still enjoy it!

Nice Lancer Pete! Glad you kept a BBC in it....Brute Power! Is it an original Arizona car? Did it used to race at Beeline?

That's pretty sweet Pete. I looked for quite some time to find a car intact like that with the original paint scheme with no luck. I would love to see some detailed pictures of this car.

I remember looking at the famous 9 drawings done while on Acid, along with the artists/subjects comments as the trip continued and abated., back when I was a kid in sociology class.

Just made me wanna take Acid as soon as I could score some. Still indulge on occasion, but the old days were the best. The always are it seems.

Driving that car back in the day must have been a trip on itself, no wonder the name . . . ! !
