t looks like a show car, but is one of the most competitive cars in Nostalgia II this year. The late Warren Brogie built this '27 Dodge, now raced in NE2 by Jim Van Gordon. Jim was looking for a Brogie-built car when he found this one in a garage in Boise. The 565ci Chrysler B engine with Brodix aluminum heads makes 960 hp, but just as impressive is the bodywork. Harley billet road lights flank the authentic grille shell. Look closely and you'll see that the fenders have been cut out. After a lifetime of racing in numerous classes, Jim says he got tired of all the electronic stuff and wanted to go back to some real racing, "where it's just you and your car. You're shifting and you're driving. Nostalgia Eliminator just fit what we wanted."
