    Welcome to the site. You have found and restored my favorite top fuel car of all time. Jim and Allison Lee always
    had well prepared cars that were quick fast and pretty too. I always enjoyed watching Allison working on the car she
    could do any part of the engine servicing. I am posting a couple pictures that I have of the car. Will you be at the 2010
    hot rod reunion in bowling green?

    May happen, bookings are not my gig though. Touch base with my dad, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll hook you up with his e-mail address and contact info.

    Check out http://www.draglist.com, nice piece on dad and the car including pic’s from when we found the car! True barn (or garage) find!
