This article relates the story of Tessa and her TE Ford Cortina. Tessa' passion for race cars can be attributed to the influence of her father. The goal of her project was to strip the Falcon-engined Cortina into small pieces with the help of her father and rework everything. However, she encountered some problems with her assembly because she cannot operate it efficiently. She tried to work with the assembly again but cannot identify the problem. It was found out later that a long bolt was poking through which acts as a very effective pedal stop.
