      The teaser of tom blake and me racing , the question was asked in the begining of this tried, who won? did the teaser go to the finish line? if so who won? Gene.

      Place your bets now…

      Here’s another question for discussion: The Coupe’s W-Block ended up in the Modified Sportscar… and Gino’s nailhead ended up in the “Let It Fly” Altered… Did those cars ever line up together for a go at it…??? That might spark some memories…eh…?! 😆

      I don’t remember the “Let it Fly” car but there is a lot of things I don’t seem to remember or got changed with time. The 409 from the ’37 did go into the fiberglass A/MSP car but it only ran Dover in 1966. What years did the “Let it Fly” car run at Dover?

          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.

              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.

                  … As I posted earlier Bill MacWilliams supplied the car when we built this project. For the last 42 years I thought the car was a ’39. I called Bill last week to tell him about the Dover site …

                  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.

                        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.

                              It’s probably got the origional Dearborn paint job on it.

                              They had Model-T’s and Model-A’s too.

                                  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.
