I have pieces from the 1977 Atlas Van Lines, the 1971 Miss Madison, the U-37 Beacon Plumbing, the U-11 Peters and May, and many others. So its no surprise I would save pieces from the Thor Racing Team as well. So when I pulled off the section in the picture below, I knew I wanted to do something special with it, but not for me.........but for the entire restoration crew. These are the people who makes these machines come back to life, and they should be honored and appreciated for their sacrifices........this will do just that.
After a couple days of thinking over my options I decided how to best utilize this piece and pay respect to the Thor Racing Team as well.
I don't want to spoil it outright, but here's a preview of what I'm starting with..........any guesses?
I'll let you all know on November 28th what it's ultimate fate will be, but just know it will be salvaged just the way it is.........trust me, it will be great! It's the largest piece we salvaged intact from the tear down, fyi.
