While investigating the Hot Rod Hill Climb in 2013, I met Cal Kennedy, he was at both the 1953 and 1954 Hot Rod Hill Climb events. His racing partner was Don Scroggs at those events, Don has been gone many years now, but his son Dave runs in our local hot rod circle.

Photos from Cal’s scrap book, the top is at the dirt drag strip that the Colorado Springs Cam Winders club ran in the 50’s.

I had this crazy thought that T-33 should be recreated again, and with the help of Dave Scroggs, Tom Wentworth, Phil Trill and so many more, the car has started to take shape.

Cal and his friends rallied with Encouragement and Support to get the old Wayne motor breathing again.

Cal and his life LuAnne brought the Wayne motor to Nick’s Garage so Mike could put it in the chassis.

We got the Motor in the chassis for the Inliners International Convention
