Who sells them? I think one would look better than my air filters? Any other idea's
Rod 'n Race Fiberglass in Berkeley Springs, WV, www.rodnrace.com. Talk to Eric and tell Rich said to call.
that engine looks "A-OK" to me. Nasty!
I will give them a call. I want to buy one of there Fiat bodies for my altered also! Thanks
I'm going to order one today. Good deal @ $75 I thought?
Is this joint still in business???....phoned and emailed...nobody home.
No return emails for me either.... Hopefully they are still in business.....
I've seen them on Evilbay. but they were way more than $75.00.
I got mine from them through Ebay, they are on there periodically.
mmmmm.....I think Legend collision sells them too... seem to be the exact same....cept there's is double the cost.....
I will do more searching.
I hate to spam your post, but I have one of those listed in the classifieds.
Spaming a mans post seems a little off ya know.
Yes, but his question was "who sells them" and he and I have had multiple conversations in the past.
I like the aircleaners you have. Those fiberglass scoops are for jet boats or funny looking dragsters.
Edit - Great looking engine by the way. Have you put it on the dyno??
Seems like an aluminum one wouldn't be hard to make, then polish it. Lippy
I think those scoops look great!
That is a tasty-lookin' scoop!
Ron Covell made and aluminum one in a step by step how too on one of the Saturday T.V. shows. Just don't remember which one. It was one nice piece when he was done with it. That man is talented!
They probably had caller I.D.
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.
GOFASTFIBERGLASS@COMCAST.NET has Many Style Surfer Scoops....Single Carb and Dual Carb... flat bottom to cut your own too.
The Gentleman called me back from RodNRace last week.He seemed very helpful and friendly.I am taking the truck to a show in Cincinnati Jan 8th,so he is pushing it right out to me.I should have it Monday or Tuesday.If it looks half as good as the pics, I will be more than pleased for $75.00.
I'm still digging mine although I haven't put it on anything yet

You got a deal!!!!
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
