In the town I live in, there is an air force base( 762 Radar squadron) now closed. As a kid I live just down the street from the access road. Just like every military base in the world in the late sixty's, early seventy's, most of the base guys had fast cars. There was this guy (last name of "Strange") who had a Rambler SC. He hated the color scheme (A) and painted it a cranberry red color without the SC trim. He also put a flat hood on it, that further disguised the car. The typical time span for guys stationed there was two and one half years, and he got shipped out. He sold the car to a guy one town over, and the guy who bought it, used it more as transportation than what it was born as. Never knew what happened to it, but If I had to guess (a few people knew what is was, but never gave it more of a thought) I bet it went to one of the local junkyards as it was driven year round for most of it's life.

While I'm a Chevy guy, these cars are very cool looking. I know if I was at the track with my car I'd be checking out your car ASAP.

Love it, very cool car! It's great that you were able to find the history and contact previous owners. Getting that information is so nice.

Got my new (old) N50ís mounted. Since I didnít like the new M&H N50ís and I have another car going together to use them on I figured these were perfect for this car
