Jeff Lutz was involved in a car crash in 2021.

In May 2021, Lutz was in a devastating crash that totaled his yellow 1957 Chevy. MotorTrend reported that the car was "one of the most beautiful drag cars out there and it broke our collective hearts to see it wadded up, but it showed off the quality of the build considering Lutz escaped with minor injuries."

In the aftermath of the accident, Lutz didn't have enough time to build an entirely new '57 Chevy, so he worked with Dennis MacPherson of No Prep Kings to work on an accelerated timetable.

As Lutz said in an interview, "I've seen a bunch of the work that Dennis [MacPherson] has done over the years, it's beautiful stuff, and he was my next choice other than myself."

Lutz located an old rusty donor car, a Bel Air, with its own VIN, to serve as the main body of the new car. From there, he and his team built the rest of the car. Eventually, it was shipped to Lutz Race Cars in Pennsylvania, where Lutz and his son continued the wiring, plumbing, and drivetrain work on the vehicle.
