A friend of mine visited Bob Odegaard's hanger this weekend and shot some pictures of Bob's -4 project and Race #74 and thought you might like to see them.
In no particular order:

Cool projects. Wish I had a building like that to work in especially with winter approaching. :)

Anyone know who their respective owners are? I'm really hoping to see that F2G someday!

Bob Odegaard owns the -4. Race 74 is...oh rat's, I forgot his name... :wink:

When we were up there last weekend Bob was saying how cool it will be to have both 57 and 74 up in the air together again as well. They're both F2G's but each had their own individual mods during their racing career. Race 57 is about as close to it's original race configuration as safely possible. Race 74 will be restored with all of its race mods still intact as well.

Bob's been working on his -4 project on and off since he salvaged it 20 years ago. He mentioned that once his Mustang was put back together (Hopefully next summer) and race 74 was done, he and the boys should have more time to work on it.
