    Hey Keith, you really are (fast)! truth is I did think about it, but after my big rambling speech in my last p.m. to you, I thought you might have had enough of my crap for a while and wanted to take a break  Grin  Great pic though, thanks, Ill have to try Mike O'Neill to see if he can obtain pics of Thurber's dash, and how the car looked when Rick owned it, I wouldn't have a clue how to find Rick, who bought Marks car, but O'Neill possibly can, we'll see.       Thanks, KG

And....... Rick was going to turn Ron's car into a fully-decked out A/MC race car at first.

That would be Rick Rockman, Dean... Rick Goodin bought Thurb's car according to KG.  Here's a pic that's been seen before but I'll add it here again.  Ron's car ran a potent 1700 and a Joe Hunt mag (not to mention a stock fuel pump Shocked Shocked ).  Back then, that mag scared a lot of potential competitors off! Grin Cool

Sorry if this is off topic, or a bit random, but what kind of generator pulley cover is that? I like it.

Always loved this car after I first saw a pic of it in Keith's (Seume) book years ago.  The colour and stance were perfect.   I take it that the car has never been found?

There’s nothing like building up an old automobile from scratch and wiping out one of these Detroit machines. That’ll give you a set of emotions that’ll stay with you. Know what I mean? Those satisfactions are permanent.
