Ramjet if ya have a copy of Australian Street Rodding 149 it is featured on page 43 and on the top right of the cover. I haven't seen it in person as it is a Victorian car. It was owned/built by Maurice Cogger of Ballarat don't know if he still has it, one of the guys on here might know. It would be fun car to own & $12,500 even better value!

The "T" speedster was built in vic in the late 80s by Doug Charter outta bits he had lyin about ... in fact its maiden voyage was to my place ...

It was recently sold to a chap in sydney by Chris Sheil

Good value at that price ... only rod i know where u can have both elbows out side the vechile at same time ,

biggest drawback is lack of room to carry an esky !!

Chris who just sold the "T" bought an A roadster p/u off Gary (aka Flamed 36)

It to is 4 banger powered and a real head turner

dunno but gary may have a pic he can post

It's a Ballarat car ... although I've never seen it .

One of the ballarat boys will have knowledge of it !

i saw it in the mag and as one shouldnt do "assumed" it was the red one !

From the article it seems a lotta fun on a budget !!

I compared Doug Charter's Speedster to Maurice Cogger's Speedster & they're are similar but the minor details give them away as different cars. Doug's car was featured in ASR 95 March/April '94 & Restored Cars Sept/Oct '94 for those playing at home

They are both cool cars & I would love to own either one or both

Geez, you blokes are way too easy to please.

Even better than that, was the time I was out cruzin with Jack Stirnemann in his brother Harry's almost stock looking, factory beige paint and all, '37 Chevy coupe.

This thing also wears them big 20 inch M/Ts but tucked neatly under the stock rear fenders so thay are almost invisible. Up front the tyres are only five inches across and they too are tucked wel under the fenders. In fact the fenders hang so low over the front tyres there's only about 2 inches of clearance at the bottom of the radiator grille.

Under the hood is a stroked 292 Chevy stovebolt sicks and making the race prepped holy 1200 dominator carb look small is a turbocharger that would make any cat truck engine proud. Like thhis is the biggest turbo i ever saw!

So, the car looks kinda innocent but fact is it's the only six cylinder car to have ever won the National Small Block (as insmall block V Hot Rod Championship, And that, despite it being the only six to run in this class. And it didn't just win once, it won the big prize five years straight and was only beaten in the end because it failed to make the line. That last time it was headed for the Indy Drag strip after 15 years of racing, the engine finally deiced to let go. Which it did at 70mph on the interstate when a con rod made a hole in the side of the block big enough for the queen mary to sail thru. It's fixed now and the new engine has good strong steel rods, not thos 'unreliable' alloy ones..

Anyhow, this thing runs mid 8 second quarters thru the mufflers on street tyres, which might give you some idea what it sounds like. Fact is, it's pure race car dressed in a stock '37 Chevy body and wearing legal street registration.

So here we are at the local servo filling the fuel cell, which takes up what litttle space is left in the boot between the wheel tubs and roll cage struts.

With the tank filled, Jack cranks it up to get some heat in the hairdryer and heads inside to pay da man. S there I am with this hot rod sitting there making some pretty wild rumpitty rump noises as it idles away at around 2,500rpm.. Just then..... this black and white cop car that looks like it's just cruising on the prowl for bad guys, does sort of a U turn and rolls into the gas staion. Cop gets out and walks over to me, asks if he can have a closer look at the car. "Yeah, I guess so." Cop then has this look as if a light has gone on in his head and says, "Hey! I know this car, it's the Chevy that runs 8s on the strip aint it?" I gulp and say, "Yup." as Jack casually strolls over and says "Hi." Cop asks if he can have a look under the hood, methinks, "We're walking home." Jack says, "Sure."

Cop checks over car, then says' he's gotta go, comments about how nice the car is and wishes us, "Have a nice day." jumps in his black and white patrol car and drives off. Leaving me standing there with my jaw on the ground wondering what just happened.

So, me and Jack are cruising happily when boy moron pulls up next to us and at the next lights tries to goose us out. Jack doesn't play and boy is pissed, tries it again at next lights, still no go. Jack just grins and says "He aint got no idea."

So after visiting a few guys shops we're on our way home, when Jack says, "We really should cruis out past whatever street and blow the cobwebs out before parking it."

So off we go to this back road on the edge of town. As we turn into the road, there's a little old lady in a new Caddy who Jack waves thru in front of us. Jack pulls the Chevy round the corner and stops, says, "I'll just richen the mixture a tad and bump the boost a a few pounds." The little tell tale lights on the fuel mixture gizmo under the dash go nuts as the blower starts to make a much louder whining noise.

Jack now has the trans brake applied and tells me to turn on the video camera and point it at the huge Sun tach on top of the dash. The needle climbs to 3,500rpm and Jack lets go of the brake. The picture just goes nuts and the camera is now pointing at the roof lining and the soundtrack records someone yelling out "YEEEEHAAAAAWWWWWW!!!!" as this sucker launches down the road. On the video tape, the picture starts to come back and now the camera is at least aimed out the windscreen as Jack lets out a most colourful series of expletives and hits the brake pedal so hard that I swear we sanded some metal offfa the bottom of the grille and my eyeballs went from pressing againsst the back of my skull to almost touching the windscreen.

Remember that little old lady? Well she musta looked in the rear vision mirror and seen us bearing doiwn on her at 'warp speed'. So what did she do? Shit her daks, slammed on the brakes and stopped dead in her tracks, that's what.

Man that's one one ride I'lll never forget ina hurry. Makes Mikey's roadster seem like that sixty pound weakling who gets sand kicked in his face at the beach.

Why don't Jack and Harry race the Chevy any more?

Coz they built a '32 Highboy, that's why.

Kinda subdued and innocent lookin all steel street rod highboy. However it's got the same DNA as the '37 Chevy, but now there's two turbos, an intercooler that piggy backs the stock deuce radiator, two dominator carbs and a couple more cylinders. But it's still less than 300 cubic inches! Trouble is it's lighter than the Chevy and wants to smoke the tyres and runs sideways for the full quarter mile, because of this lack of traction it only runs 9s but it looks good doin it.

It do also have one of the world's neatest personaised license plates. It reads 203MPH and the numbers match those on the SCTA/Bonneville timing tag screwed to the dash. On only Jack and the car's third ever run on the salt, a licensing run no less (on the shourt cours by the way) the car ran 199mph. Against a 176mph class record, set on the long course. That was day one of Bonneville 2001. At around 6:00a.m. on day 2 with only 3 licensing passes on it, the car entered the record books resetting the D/ Blown Street Roadster class record to 196mph. That afternoon on thier first ever run on the long course, Jack and the car ran 212mmph, which was backed up the following morning to earn Jack his 'redd cap' (200mph Club) and bump the record to 103mph.

Two days later, the roll cage was removed, the 'stock' seat, wheels and windscreen' re installed and the car was driven from Bonneville back to St Louis, where it was blown apart for a cleanup and some detailing.

A few months later, it was on display at the world famous Oakland roadster Show where won the Best Enginneered Street rod award, plus a couple of others. Sadly it was runner up for the big trophy.

Nowadays the innocent looking little car can be seen regularly cruising the streets of St Louis and attending rod runs looking like just another very nicely built deuce highboy, which I guess is what prompted Gerry Burger to open his feature on the car in Street Rod Builder, with the line, "This car deserves a lot more respect than it gets." In fact, those of you who read Street Rod Builder or Super Rod, may even be more familliar with the car and also have given it little respect. Y'see it appears in a Du Pont Paint advert that is often the back cover of those magazines and that guy at the wheel, with the big grin on his dial is none other than Jack Stirnemann, co owner, builder and driver.

Oh yeah, of course I was at Bonneville to get all that on video, hell I even got some of the roadtrip on tape as well as the pre trip prep of the car. In fact, I've got photos and video covering the full ten or so year build up of the car, starting with the body leaning against the shed wall just after it was dragged home. In fact the car was almost built from a once well known and famous California Hot Rod, but that's a whole other story.

All this stuff is good, but it still aint better than sex, sso please don't tell your wives it was me that caused the sticky mess in your trousers. She may get the wrong impression.

OOOPPS, too late . I had to tell her, at least she understood

I'd sure love to see that footage someday. Sounds like you've got enough material for your own "Mad fab" style production.

Cheers and beers

A month in the US usually creaates about 10 to 15 hours of video tape.

This was to be my 20th trip, but it'll hafta wait till next year now.

Yeah, I do have a mountain of tape which I'lll shortly be converting from analogue to digital and burning to DVD.

Many of the existing tapes are getting around out there in hot rod land. since i knwo some of the people I gave them to loaned them to others who have copied them and p[aassed the originals on to the next person.

Of course I also know there's a few folks out there who got their hands on a copy and aint lettin em go anyhwre.
