Default Scooped By Moriarity



I was on my way home from the H.A.M.B. Drags and somewhere around Edmond, Oklahoma when my cell phone rang. I glanced at my iPhone to see the name "Mark Moriarity" flash across the screen. I answered and Mark got right to the point. "Hey man, what ...

Great story and it is good to see that the manifold ended up with the car even if it isn't on the car.


Yuppers Wingnutz it's one of that batch of cars built for the race that year.

There is a bit of history on the cars in this pfd starting on page 39 http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/wmh/...g02_gerber.pdf

Anything worth knowing is right here on the Oracle of Hot Rodding, the mighty HAMB.
This is a pretty remarkable website you've got yer self Ryan.
Thanks
One of my most favorite cars of all time, the Car Craft Dream Rod, was right in my backyard in Mark's possession being restored.

That was a cool read. Your guys collections are much cooler than mine...
What are the odds of finding that intake (un-useable to the normal guy), and actually owning the car it was built for? Too cool.

It's great that somebody that can actually USE the RARE manifold got it, and didn't have to pay a stupid amount of money to get it. I'd definately say it was Karma........

"The odd little intake was cheap, so Guffey bought it and promptly posted it on the H.A.M.B. hoping someone could identify it. "

Guffey buys it on a whim, doesn't know what it fits, BUT HE HAS THE CAR !!
THAT is the miracle !

Karma indeed !!

Thanks for posting this Ryan, The title on the other thread was a little goofy so not many people saw it even though I kept pushing it back to the top making smart ass comments. Mike Guffey has an amazing collection of vintage/historic drag cars including the Golden commandos 65 ply altered wheelbase car, the 64 ramchargers car, 2 of big Als cars the Quad Al and the Big Al 3. also 2 miller indy cars an AJ Watson roadster....the list goes on and on. He is a great guy a true race historian and my best friend.....
