Ken Hand

Pontiac, Michigan

Late model race car

DOS: March 2003

EDD:  Shortly thereafter

The Story:  This car is the former Grass Roots Motorsports 2002 Challenge car Ken bought from Pat Carety. At this point Ken was installing a roll cage installed and everything else was out or off the car. He was also building another front cross member to put in the car. Part of the project while the car was in the air was installing a rebuilt 3.89 4 spider posi differential with a close ratio transmission. His plan was to build an engine with bored Rochesters, angle port exhaust, 10:1 compression, and headers.  By this point Ken had installed a nylon bushed horse collar and was working on a solid rear engine mount.

Since I received this submission, Ken completed most of the work and more on the car, and has been successfully racing the car in and around Michigan.  You can see pictures of Ken's car in action at his website.
