A chopped 1940 Ford Convertible custom that Bill Collins photographed at a small dragstrip in Mansfield, Lousiana circa 1954-1955. According to his buddy Karl Knecht, "North and central Texas racers traveled to this drag strip on several occasions." For all we know, the owner could have been from Texas, Louisiana, or somewhere else. Photo courtesy of Bill Collins, provided by Karl Knecht.
Neil Sidders' Outlaw, of West Monroe, Louisiana as it looked when it was completed in 1973. The car is built around one of the few known Outlaw bodies that Ed Roth made after building the original Outlaw. Neil's body came from Northern California, and was pretty beaten up after being used on an Altered Class drag car. The Altered was said to have a blown Oldsmobile engine at one time, and the car was called "The Orange Peeler".
