                Gary was behind the camera, & didn’t even get in the picture. That is Bobby Cataldo on the left, he is one fabricating son of a gun. He has built a helicopter, 2 airplanes, with another in his shop under construction right now, race bikes ( drag & off-road ),hot rods, U name it he’s probably worked on it. Rick Hembry on the right, we brought him from Oklahoma to Kentucky. He’s a walking encyclopedia on Mopars. He’s got a Plymouth Arrow pick up with a mild 360 in it. It’ll smoke the tires half way thru 3rd gear. Lots of fun.
                The big holdup on the Dart now is me. I have to finish the tool to build the other fender, & then tool up for the doors which are simple in comparison. The hood will be built from scatch, which will be easier than trying to stretch the stock one. Hopefully all that will be done by spring. I think there are shots of the stretch fender under the projects colume from quite a while back.

                      We’ll do that, or at least put it somewhere for inspiration!
                      Unfortunately, the Dart looks about the same, which was really the biggest factor in our not going to Island this year.
                      I’ve decided to go back in and put new tubs in it, as the current ones were made with an old hot water heater and are kind of rough even for me. I’ve also got an idea to enhance the main hoop’s integrity with the frame stiffeners, then I can shoot it with primer/sealer and by then the other carbon parts should be ready. Then we’ll have some new pix, like Bill said.
                      I’ve always seen this car as being called “The Crusader” but am considering doing a “Storm King” version instead. Maybe I should do a poll here?

                              Its “YOUR” car you have to decide in the end , but why not just “STORM KING” and what ever number car it is you have built to show your “LONG” line of comptition cars ……….. “STORM KING XXIII” …………… just my two cents …… tomato 😀 ❗

                                I’ve got to run it by Bill, really his name for the cars. I see Goodguys has put together a nostalgia Pro Stock class, and seperated them by era, which is the only sensable way to do it. We’ve got a couple fo Dart Sports which we could either convert to , or trade for, a Duster, and we could build a recreation of Bill’s last ride, his Pro Stock Hemi Duster and go have some fun with that too. He’s about to have a decent sized home workshop to play in, so it is a possiblility.
                                I had thoght I could hang the “Crusader” name on the mid engined ’27 T I’m going to begin building as soon as the Dart is a roller. I’m going to have ‘Roo-man up in Indy do the chassis.
