Wow, great cars Shane. Another Minnesotarian, LOL. As I commented on Jamies thread, I have lots of family in Minnesota. Aunt and Uncle had a bar and tavern on little Cordova Lake (been so long since I was there that I can't even tell you where that is) and they were really heavy into stock car racing. 1963 was last time I was there and they had a '53 ford conv with a cage. They used to drive that thing at full throttle on all the old gravel back roads tearing up the roads. The corn was planted to the edge of the road and when they got sideways both ends of the car could be touching the corn. It just amazed me that they never ran into another car over one of the little hills. The Lake is really shallow with a rock bottom, so they'd run it full throttle out into the lake and stop and wash it. I have great memories of Minnesota as a kid. Glad you joined in with the fun.
