    hahaha, I did cut grass with it one time after I rebuilt the engine but before I painted it and chromed everything! It has an open exhaust that exits in the deck. It is loud and sounds like you are mowing with a chainsaw!!

    It will be worse next year when he adds the blower and switches to 68% nitro.

    haha, 90% nitro.....
     
  12. Reminds me of the Surfers top fuel team in the early 60s. College kids competed on a shoestring, reportedly ran 100% nitro because they couldn't afford to keep replacing broken hydrometers!!

  15. I don't know how many have noticed but Mark has focused on one period in hot rod history in his collection. Late 50's to early 70's covers most of it. He is very accomplished with all aspects of building his stuff. He doesn't drive all of it but I believe he has run all of it at least once such as the go kart. I used to see him at car shows driving some of his cars. He still had time to go to work and have a career. The few times I've been around him have been very pleasant. We were able to talk about many subjects and smile a lot. Many people have collections and don't derive constant pleasure from being surrounded by their "stuff" I believe Mr. Moriarity is happy with his collection even though there is an occasional change. My world is split in several different aspects. I respect how he has managed this part of his world. :)

    Mark’s collection is his life.

    His tool and die job is just a break from his life.
