As a wise once man said: "Different Strokes for Different Folks"! Mine is a mania to show owner/drivers of exotic "PreWar" European race cars the noisy end of my exhaust system. To that end I've spent hours of time and unknown bundles of money. Plus a lot of disappointment and heartache. A mechanic friend of mine came over to my pit area last year to whisper in my ear that his customer/patron (who races a multi-million dollar 1930's "Italian Stallion") was chagrined that he couldn't keep up with my car. John: The flathead that put out 147 h.p. was put together by Jay Steel to the direction of an old guy (who's name escapes me). The guy was a good friend of Jim Brierley. You'd probably know him.
