I love eveything about it.
Somebody mentioned Tom McMullen's 2nd '32 roadster back in the 70's------Here's some pix when we were at roadster roundup back then, I used to tease ol' Tom about that motor being so noisy & loud----I told him it sounded like a cement mixer!!--------Don
We were at El Centro in '76 or '77 when Alex brought the Moser car out for JP to drive. I think it made it almost all the way through hot laps before it broke once again. Lowell Carsden, over from Az. with Dennis Matuzak explined the failure in highly technical terms. He said, "trouble is, you got Ford parts in a Head designed to fit a Chevy, and as soon as the parts start fighting, the motor breaks. They sure looked beautiful though.
But I don't think it would have nearly as much factor. Just another Nissan V8.
