06/26/06 Jeff McClung Speaking with Ken at New Egypt one night I got interesting info on this car, it is a Rittenhouse kit car, not sold as a complete chassis but in pieces to be welded together by the purchaser.  I wonder if anyone else sold kits like Rittenhouse?  I was also told that it was a very economical way to build a car. This is one of my favorite 70's era modifieds.
06/26/06 3-Wide Somewhere around here I have a catalog from "Profile" and it seems to me you could buy all the pieces and assemble it yourself.  Think the whole chassis and cage was about $750 or so...
11/19/06 Michael S. Brown This is one of the frames I welded for Ken, and Ebby Ridge.  It is a COPY of a profile frame WE cut the pcs and put it together. The Gremlin body was originally yellow, when it was yellow It had a terrible wreck right on the
front stretch at the end of the season.  I have rarely heard such hard hits and then silence I will never forget that red flag all had already stopped.. We worked for weeks getting it back together (nope he was not hurt).
