Consider the classic moniker "Little Stinker" - originally used on Rulska's # "X" modified pictured in the Old School Cool thread. couple more pics here:

When I was but a tad, back at the dawn of time, I bought go-kart parts from Steen's in California. They had a great logo - I found this pic in a listing for vintage decals:

John Steen developed one of the first synthetic oils, and was the US distributor for Rickman frames, Ceriani forks and wheels, and was also the manufacturer of "Taco" minibikes. Google takes you to a great history page http://www.steenstacominibikes.com/

Sick! I am jealous, like, Running a T-bird body on a circle track car! How awesome is that! That's a cool link and a sweet logo!

Actually, that's an early 60's Falcon body, with the roof raised and cut back. An excellent example of styling cues used across a line of cars. If you really dig Falcon modifieds, look up track pics from Lancaster, NY, and/or Maynard Troyer. Maynard had a couple of nice Falcons when he was a weekly racer at Lancaster, and some wild Pinto one-off's before he started producing jig-built chassis.
Is it a coincdence that I've seen a Troyer chassis mod "vintageafied" with a '66 Mustang fastback shell, and it was in perfect proportion? I dunno, but I liked it!
