This is a fun place to visit, and see the "INNER SANCTUM" of Chuck Finders Engineering through the years!
When we had the Memorial Service for my dad, there were a couple a shots of a few PlayBoy models included in the service. It's who he was,
and it's what he would have wanted had he planned it! Beautiful Woman and Beautiful Race Cars were a part of his life and both were present at his final farewell. If you look hard enough
you'll see both in most of this group of photos.
Enjoy This for the Reality of Chuck Finders.
You don't have to look to hard to see the PlayBoy Centerfolds in the background.
I worked in this shop in about 1983, I did some work on the chassis on the car in the foreground, the Plymouth Arrow.
This was the second shop on Oberlin Rd. Over by Ron's Transmissions. I remember seeing hundreds of Hemi heads and rocker assy's stacked under the bench in 86 or so, (he told me, one of his nick names was "Hemi Charlie" It made perfect sense) when I saw all the heads.
I think this was the first shop on Oberlin Rd. maybe 82 83, I remember the tire balancing rings and spinning up a tire while on the car, not the way shops do it now days.
These two shots "above" are actually two different frames but very similiar, I guess he had it figured out.
I believe this is the Milan 86 Willys. "What a JYNXED car this was"!
This frame is the frame in the Hell 88 39 Willys "Gasser Madness" Project Truck, the Coupe on the left is the Current "Traveler", Hank Wetmore is Campaigning it on the East Coast.
I believe this is the Stone Woods Cook & Chuck Finders Clone made in 2002.
As I understand, this "Frame" is over in England, under a 1940 Steel Coupe. How many Fabricators can say they have cars they built located all over the World! That's a Major Life Accomplishment.
This is the second shop on Oberlin Rd. Elyria Ohio Remember the Tele 216-458-6553 I do!
I like the Ribbon on the shop sign. My dad takes "Credit" for the original "Dark Horse". The Dark Horse is the first 1933 Willys Coupe that was at the 64 Winternationals seen in our "History Section", The light Colored Stone Woods Cook & Chuck Finders 33 Coupe. My understanding is, Leonard Woods gave permission to my dad to build this car in 2002, (After all it was my dad's car). The team SWC basically had my dad put SWC on the car so he could meet "Booking Commitments" for the team while they were updating to Hemi Power. (You can see an article in the Magazine section regarding the SWC engine swap. His name was on the car... as it was his Car!
