Mid to end of 1966 to 1972 when i crashed it at maple grove, I do rember the name ODD JOB
Looks like there was only a slim chance we may have run each other after we made the engine transplants to the new cars. The “Let it Fly” car started running Dover as I was getting ready to move to South Carolina. I moved with the ODD JOB II car before the 1966 season finished.
Not impossible but a slim chance. Now let’s see if someone can come up with the picture to show me wrong. This site has had that ability to come up with the impossible.
Since Gene and I know we ran each other with the ’37 and the Studebaker but still don’t know who won, just maybe some will know if we raced each other with the new combination and can tell us who won.
Thats a tall order …we’ll check the video clips But give us a lttle time !

Just looking back on dates of the ODD JOB II and what happened to it. I just realized a strange coincidence we must have crashed both cars about the same time. I crashed mine in Orangeburg SC in or about 1972 (don’t have the exact date)
Just found the last time slip from Orangeburg South Carolina.
Date of the crash in Orangeburg was 10/19/67.
That was the last run of the day for top eliminator.
When is Bill MacWilliams going to check into this site and see all this stuff for himself…???
Hay Maso…..Bill is a member “wjm1942”. He has looked at the site but not posted anything. I don’t think he has seen the latest pictures, will try to contact him again. Thanks for the reminder.
He ought to have something to add to this thread.
……Checked his profile: ‘last visited May 18….edit-dino’
We stopped in Macon GA on our way to the Dover race that was to be on Oct 18.
We met Bill and gave him three pictures of our ’37 Ford from Dover. He hadn’t seem them because his computer was down.
He was surprised to see such a good picture of the ’37 from back them.
That’s why he hasn’t been on the site for some time but should be back soon.
I just got back from the Ford/Edison Museum in Ft. Meyers and they have a beautiful ’37 Ford Coupe there just like Tom and Bill’s but in dark blue.
Lets buy it and make a gasser out of it … 😆 😆 😆
It’s probably got the origional Dearborn paint job on it.
They had Model-T’s and Model-A’s too.
So What , I’ve destroyed many nice cars in my life , whats another one 😆 😆 😆 My 69 camaro was originally a SS396 , 375h.p. , 4spd , 4.10 posi ,black on black with white stripes . this became Super Pumpkin II …Who knew back then what these things would be worth
When I saw Bill on the way up to the Oct 18th race he told me what he paid for the 37.
He bought the car for $150 but sold it for a huge profit $200. Wow a $50 profit, what a deal.
When he bought it there was no engine in it, maybe the deal wasn’t so good. 😆 😆 😆
I’d love to find a deal like that today.
