Postcard from Chad

                         Coolville, Ohio

It used to be stock car meant one thing.  But guys streched the rules.  Created what was a modified jig car.  No stock frame but just a tubular chassis and a thin sheet of metal.  In the late seventies they added a wedge nose.  Most use a 75-85 chop block Chevy Malibu engine with a hand made back end.  Brakes, tires and suspension are chosen for the track.  About 30 thousand dollars in each car.
