im using the corpse of my 1960 Schwinn Speedster for my BBO6 entry.
and the inspiration from Mickey Thompson's salt flat cars "Challenger", and "Challenger II"
I want it to resemble a barn fresh dragster find.

i spent the day cleaning the grime off the frame, i cleared the chainguard and ive been working on the chrome.
ill post pics later tomorrow sometime.
i would have done more but i had a big house fire to deal with today in the next town over.
My dad has been involved in firefighting for about 40 years now, and a close family friend was killed in the line of duty a few years back, so I'm very appreciative of you guys....especially the volunteers!
