The Henry J Saga–Part 2

In part one of my Henry J saga, you read about my first inspiration to own a Henry J, which was my dad’s drag car if you do not recall. What didn’t reach the surface was my excitement each and every time I saw a Henry J at a car show. I am still very attracted to these cars, even if they aren’t built to suit my tastes, so if I see one, you can bet I’ll be checking it out thoroughly. I’ve probably seen 100 Henry J’s in my life, and I can appreciate all of them.

All along the way, I’ve taken pictures of EVERY Henry J I’ve laid eyes on, and I still do the same today. If I see a Henry J I take a picture of it. With this in mind, I figured Part 2 of my saga will show my ongoing inspiration to buy and build a Henry J. This blog won’t be nearly as wordy as Part 1, but you’ll see some of my favorite J’s through the years. Check ’em out!

Okay, so I didn't take this's another Henry J my dad owned. He never raced it to my knowledge.

Here's another one I didn't take, but it's a car from right here in Dayton. IT'S STILL IN DAYTON! Hopefully someday I can buy it.

What could offer more inspiration than a Henry J funny car? Add to that the fact that it's a fairly local car and I'm all over it.

Two Henry J's on the track at one time! This was almost too much for me to handle!
