Several things I forgot to say about the car: The trailer IS included in the price! The owner was told the car was built in the 1940s and has been safety inspected for vintage racing for many years,as the decals on the car attest to. Finally it has a quick change rear and 3 sets of gears. Where can you safely go racing in a killer car for 12K??? George Albright
