Dan and his 68 Road Runner were picked for the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational, and after that, were here at the Del Mar Goodguys course, having a great time

 That is Dan at the left of the photo. Served in the US Marines, finished his enlistment and is now building race cars. That is cool!
his Car Carft Magazine feature:
 Speedometer and gauges refinished by Red Line Gauge Works who do incredible work, and have had their work featured in many magazines

To understand what it is to be invited into the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational... you need to know that the people who you race against include Bill Goldberg (host of Garage Mahal, and Bull Run, and formerly a wrestling star) and people with unlimited money to make their cars as close to full race cars as you can't find the difference. Dan was invited for his awesome 1968 Road Runner that is so good, and built by himself and friend Mike while he was in the Marines, at the Auto Hobby Shop at MCAS (Marine Corps Air Station) Miramar here in San Diego (formerly NAS Miramar where the TopGun training scholl for jet jocks was, and I was stationed at that base from 1995-1997 and spent a lot of time at that same Auto Hobby Shop working on my 1969 Dodge Super Bee)
