Unhappy Re: Ed Wright Passes

Full of information and insight. Never met Ed in person but I felt as though we knew each other for a long time. Enjoyed his posts greatly as well as exchanging a few jokes by email every now and then. I'm going to miss you Ed. R.I.P. Jim

Default Re: Ed Wright Passes

I saw a post on the book at faces recently. Ed’s car was at the no problem race. And it looks like the current owner is selling it. I’m sure it’s way out of my budget. But would like to know what they are wanting for it. Just in case I could put the cash together to buy it. I responded there. Figured I’d post here too. If anybody knows or heard of the asking price. Please let me know. Long shot for me but who knows maybe. It appears Greg and Chase Williams are the current owners of the car.

Thanks

I first met Ed in 1969 at a race in Tulsa. I was a much-too-big-on-myself 19 year old and Ed was kind and patient and friendly. We had conversed over the years a lot and I considered him a friend. God speed, Ed!

He started helping me in 1995 with what is now my bracket car. He tuned it remotely and through the mail. I was a a dumb 25 year old. But he guided me to get that car where I wanted it. Years later I moved to the Midwest. And I made a bunch of engine changes to that car. And was down in Tulsa. Getting it tuned on his dyno. He offered to take me to his house and show me his SS car. This was before it went to East Texas to be back halved. I was hooked. And knew SS was too much for me to build. So I built a stocker. I’m ashamed of myself. Because we let our friendship slip there at the end. Because of an idiot politician.
