My buddy's run this roadster at the drag races and wants to know if it's okay for Bonneville.  Looks like it will roll to me . . .

Stan, obviously it would meet the roll bar rules for 1958... probably needs seat belts  grin

Some striped canvass, a cup holder and a couple of flower pots - make for a nice awning over the glider . . .
