Donít want to hijack this thread, (my apologies to OP) but that was a false alarm, the number gotĒ translated ďwrong somehow and itís a different person and looks like they passed away in 2012. One digit was off in the area code from. Back then, when searched initially it was the wrong number used , itís straightened out now but doesnít seem like itís gonna do me any good . Will still keep working on it but doesnít look promising .

Had a chance meeting with Doug Davis's other son Tim this morning at the Dayton Cars & Coffee show. Tim is also a geared with his passion being his 300ZX Turbo which he's owned for 27 years. This was the first time Tim had seen his Dad's car. Fun time!

Had another great day adding to the history of the Rats Nest COPO. Went to the Gathering of the Geezers event at KilKare Dragway. Met up with Denny Davis who took Rats Nest down the track just like his Dad did over 50 years ago. Denny had his daughter Emma riding shotgun. Video is posted on my Facebook page.
Also ran across a relative of a prior owner. Terry (Gator) Knisley is the nephew of Daniel Knisely (deceased). Daniel owned the car around 1975 and drag raced it without lettering but still in the red/white/blue paint scheme. Gator remembers this car sitting on a trailer at his uncle's house.

My best attempt at recreating pics from 50+ years ago. I took these with a high resolution camera so hard to duplicate a shot from 1971 timeframe.

Tommy Lee Bird created a great video of the car for his Youtube channel "The Hot Rod Hoarder". Enjoy!

Default and so it has begun.....

The deconstruction of Rats Nest back to just another COPO has begun. I think that's a 5W-20 tear being shed by Rats Nest. Vintage speed parts relegated to garage art duty until the next project needs them.
