There is a reason we use one year as a significant measurement of time. A great many things can happen over the course of a single rotation around our sun. Journeys are began and completed. We as individuals grow older and wiser. Taylor Swift blows through dozens of relationships and corresponding hit singles.
A year can be used as an assessment of progress. For Ira Schacter and his S65-powered ’33 hot rod project, progress was certainly evident.

One of these is really important. The other is being a dad.
In every racer’s life, there comes a time that requires us to trade in horsepower and the smell of burnt rubber, for cribs and dirty diapers.
