When I was 15 I watched Sangers race. I always wanted one. I'm 65. My neighbor and I were discussing our car collections when he mentioned that he had a boat in his barn he wanted to find a home for. So after 50 years, and a half mile from my house, I now own a beautiful 1974 Sanger 18 10!!! 427 drag boat that sat for 21 years in his barn and seems to be excellent. It's already in pieces being inspected.

Thnks! I may need advice, it's completely disassembled for inspection. I spoke with Andrew Casale yesterday and he agreed to help me with the v drive. This is a trip!
