For years I (The Tin Man) have wanted to build a drag car. I have been involved with performance cars since I was 14 years old and had a couple of oportunities to go down the drag strip but never with a car that was ment to be there. A couple of years back I traded a bit of work and a bit of storage for a '39 Ford Sedan. It was just a body shell and a frame and a few parts. Originally I thought I would make it a roller and bring it to the swap meet, then I attended the Minnesota Street Rod Association sponsored "Super Secret Fun Run" nostalgia drag race at Brainerd International Raceway. The rest is history. A friend (Ron Dvoracek) and I decided to team up on building the '40 into a 1/4 mile screamer.
