Fairlane, Fulmer Lance (1958)
This is the way it was "back in the day", as my kids would say. This Fairlane was owned by Tommy Jackson and Fulmer lance and driven by Fulmer. I helped build and maintain it. The car had a '58 Ford frame, Boss 302 engine and Franklin quickchange. We had roll bars made out of black steel pipe. The '58 frame never handled as well as the old '55-56 frames we had used before. Most of the car was made right in the garage with only a few "bought" parts. No fuel cell, I think we had a Volks Wagon gas tank and a truck radiator of some sort. We used bolt on front spindle snouts and wide five hubs with drum brakes.
We ran the local dirt tracks in N GA and W NC.
