I've always liked the shape of the early GBP dragster scoop.

Yes, Rod 'n Race is still very much in business. The owner, Eric Young, has moved everything to a new shop, and may sometimes be away from the phone.
For what it's worth, his wife died earlier this year, and he has 3 small kids to get off to school each morning and pick up in the afternoon, meaning the shop hours are now 9am to 3pm.

Our Surfer scoops are the best value in the market. Classic design at a vrey affordable price.

This seller on eebay seems to sell a lot of surfer / vintage scoops. If you search for surfer scoops, his stuff comes up a lot. I suspect he makes them but I have no idea. "41willyscoupe" has a 100 percent rating... Gary

Default Re: Surfer Scoop

Here is the history of this Scoop. This fiberglass scoop first appeared on the Greer- Black- Prudhomme Kent Fuller AA/FD with a center rib. Tony Nancy bought one and copied it, removing the center rib which Tony ran on the 22 Jr. Top Gas dragster in 1963 on top of his Enderle Barndoor Injectors. This is what is being sold as the Surfer's Scoop and is not the same shape. The Surfer's Scoop is casted aluminum, shorter & angled at the front, narrower, top half shape is different and has a flatter back to it. Archie Ary, Tommy Larkin and Fuller-Zueschel- Moody also used this scoop. Call it what you like.

More Scoop History from Glen Cupit :
I just spoke with Arty again and he offers this:
He thinks that Wayne Ewing made an aluminum scoop for one of Tony's cars with a 4-port, possibly BEFORE the GBP scoop and the others that Wayne made?

It was THAT scoop that Tony had a mold made from and sold fiberglass copies.
Arty also thinks that Tony had a local fiberglass shop make the mold and the scoops.
Tony merchandised and sold them. Arty bought one.
Arty thinks that Ewing was just as pissed at Nancy for copying the scoop, the same as Ewing was at Arty for making a mold off the Wale & Candies car!


Arty thinks that Nancy did not modify his fiberglass scoop from what the aluminum scoop was.
He said that Tony's aluminum scoop did not have a divider? So, neither did his fiberglass scoops.

It's hard to keep these 47 year old stories accurate and straight!!
If we are still alive . . . . our memories of the same event are always slightly different!

the "Surfers" beat GB&P ,Toney Nancy and Garlets with junkyard parts ,,GB&P& T Nancy thought it was the "Scoop" that made the difference,,,so they had to have one ,,and copied it for their Diggers ,,the "Surfer Scoop" is properly named for the 'Surfer Kids" that first ran it ,,
Google " Surfers Dragster" and check out the history ,,videos ,,etc,,,kool stuff
