EL that "Moonlighter" Willys is familiar, was that Gene Moody a Mid Atlantic area racer?
That is our own Gene Cromer's willys way back in time.
No it’s Gene Cromer from South Carolina and those are his daughters who used to travel with him sometimes when he raced it back in the 60s. Here is the build thread from when it was rebuilt. It’s one of my favorite threads ever.

Nice pictures, I especially like the first picture of it. Here is the car that it was racing in the last picture.
Here it is a few years ago when the Amocat Speed shop guys had it [I think?]. Pretty sure the car was sold, whereabouts??
I remember seeing it in a video when Amocat Speed Shop had an open house and found this picture of it but didn’t know that they had sold it. Maybe someone else on here knows where it went.
EL was that in SC and where is/was Arlington airport?
I have never seen the car in person. The pictures were from the internet and I saw a video on the open house and that may have been on the HAMB but that was a few years ago. The car was in Washington and I think that is where it was raced originally but I didn’t know that it was sold or where it went. I would guess that it was at the Airport at Arlington, Washington
Makes sense, I looked up Arlington airport, one in Washington and one in Texas. So I'll go with Washington.
Arlington WA about 45 Miles north of Seattle.
@Johnny99 thats a nice shot. I especially like the early shots. That coupe was on the HAMB and a guy traded a finished 32 Ford Coupe for it. The Willys was a project car. Then the new owner sold it and someone else on the HAMB that lived in Michigan. He bought it and he eventually sold it too. I have no idea of where it went after that.
Have you looked at the '67-'69 four door T' birds?????.......
Or how about a mid '60s Lincoln?????.....
Deuces, noboD was asking about "Willys" and that is what my reply was about. American built Willys.
I understood that. Thanks.
Post 7236 second picture down, yellow coupe with the nose open ... did someone make a fire pit out of a tire instead of a wheel?
This one belongs to a HAMBer
