Jim Pace, owner, builder, driver of J.P.'S Toyz , an A-Gas 1948 Anglia, 1/4 mile
nostalgia race car, was born and raised in Fairfield, CA.
J.P.'s interest in cars from childhood up to the present has landed him many
awards. His interest started with his first Revell model car contest in 1959,
moving on to drag racing at the old Vacaville and Freemont Drag strips in
California in the 60's and 70's, and on to building street rods in the 70's and
25 years ago, J.P. bought a 1960's race car known as "Catnip" and reworked it
into the new J.P.'S Toyz. The body modifications include, chopping the top 3",
channeling the body 6", laying the grille and windshield back for aerodynamics,
and moving the rear wheels back and up 2/8" to achieve a 95" wheelbase. How
would you like to drive a car with the wheel base the size of a sheet of plywood
at 186mph in 7.33 seconds! The blown-on alcohol power plant is a 540 cubic inch
Keith Black all-aluminum Chevrolet, with a B&J planetary transmission. The PPG
paint is a custom J.P. Red with Pearl White nose that flows into orange and
yellow flames. J.P. is well known for his long and smoky 1/2 track burnouts.
