    Joe actually painted it for his dad,(my dads cousin) who replicated it from a car my Uncle, (Ray Lumbert who built it and ran it at Oswego in the late 60s, and early 70s.) Yes it was suposed to say TPS, (The Performance Shop) but sence they went out of busness, Its now Teds performance shop, Or Ted's body and paint. Joe hates it, that is why he didnt post the pics on here. Ted also has a 58 chevy called dadds thing, that also ran out at Oswego in the day.

    Donny, very cool. I thought that TPS logo looked familiar. Last I new, TPS Pat was raising mini horses at his home in Lake Geneva. Wish I had the money for a car like that. For anything actually.

    When were you out at the Track? I'm there quite a bit, actually the car club that I am in put on a Heads Up Race there this past Saturday...

    Rain / Race,,, Rain / Race.... Good times even with the mid 40 degree temps... Funny part was my son got to take the minibike he has been working on down the track.. Little bugger beat the crap out of me both passes down the track..

    I was about 1/2 track when he was flying through the traps at about 50mph... Damn kids beating up on the old man!

    here's some pics from our event if ya want to take a look.
