    Tried to combine these two post but had to cut and paste. Now follow along class 🙄

    quote patina:

    While talking to Bill Bartolomeo (Mr Willys) at his shop (Wheels of Time) in Pine Plains he said a guy from Kingston that sells or installs vinyl siding had the motor and wanted to know if he was interested in it. Now thats a lot of he said she said but thats what he said. Bill is on the site maybe he can fill in the blanks.

    The MG is running we are trying to go to the valley Sunday to see if it moves.

    Jerry from Automotion also told me about a Crosley pie wagon and I thought “Little Giant” but now the picture says it all another Crosley wagon running Dover 😮 Headline reads Giant Still Lost 🙁 🙁 🙁

    The Crosley belonged to Tommy Jameson,it was an A/alt,injected Olds powered.Prior to that,Tommy had a 50 Ford 2dr,Olds power also.The Crosley ran both Dover and the Valley.Tommy was a heating and air conditioning tradesman,last I known,he worked for the defunct Kingston Mechanical Co.Last ‘hot rod’ he built was a Pinto S.W. with a small block Ford,Tommy was highly skilled.His brother was an engineer for Ford in ‘racing’ performance parts,and worked with Gapp and Rouch in his spare time in the ‘Pro Stock era,developing both power and performance in Ford’s 351 Boss engine.Back in in mid 60’s,I bought a 35 Ford coupe (stock) from Tommy’s father,for a project,when I first moved to New York State.I suspect Tommy is ‘retired’ now,perhaps still in Kingston.His brother in law is Phil Sachs from Saugerties,runs a 69 Mustang red fastback,428 cu. in. street strip.knocking on the door of 10’s at the Valley during ‘nostalgia’ meets.
