Last time I told you about the beautiful Cheetah sports racer that wrecked at the 2016 Road Atlanta Walter Mitty and how disappointed I was that it crashed prior to even qualifying for the vintage races. On Saturday we returned to the Paddock for another walk through prior to the start of racing and I spotted a car that looked familiar yet distinctly different. I approached and fell more in love with what I saw yet did not know what it was. Suddenly I realized it was a car that never was; it was a Cheetah Roadster!

Although much of the original Cheetah remains the removal of the roof and modification of other body panels really brings the “sexy” level of the car sky high!

 

I had never seen or even contemplated what a Cheetah Roadster might look like but here one was and it was beautiful.

The more race like paint job and racing decals also really add to the overall appearance of the Cheetah Roadster.

Seen here on track with a Boss 302 Mustang gives you a better idea of the Cheetahs overall size.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
