Cap Weir ran a garage in the teens and '20s, which his grandson Jim Weir advertises on the bed of his '24 Ford pickup. Jim bought the Model TT truck (a C cab and Express Body bed on a 1-ton chassis) three years ago and overhauled the whole thing. The 176ci T engine makes 20hp at 1,900 rpm. The suspension is stock and the rear gears were swapped from 7.25s to 5.25s. This was his first time racing, but Jim's learning quick. The hay bale in the bed, "is to keep from spinning the rear tires."
