A gentleman came in today with his dad's old Hoffman box, which had a mix of 60's cars, a couple of Womps him and sister raced, at Mark Mattei's Cycle Smithy, the below shown late 70's, early 80's wing cars, and the Ulrich purple painted Lola, shown with a homemade brass, body add-on.

He said it was built for head on duels with other cars.

Love the Lola, wow demo derby races. That would be cool but probably not for track owners.

Interesting use of a Manta Ray chassis. Cool old stuff.

Yes, Dave, complete with a couple Dynamic guide tongue lead weights, for a little extra crushing weight. LOL
