Hey Nick, I believe we have your the last Bell Boys car here in our garage. It was your dad's car, and then Craig drove it with the probe body on it. It is a 1989 Massey Chassis car, and it is the nicest piece of pipe out there. It is an honor to drive the same car your dad did, he was an awsome driver and nice guy. If you want to see it, I'll get you some pics...Mike
