    Great turnout of cars at the monthly NHRA Museum cruise night. This month they featured Willys and this was probably one of the largest Willys gatherings in a long time with 42 showing up. There were some serious shit there with blown & injected Arias; Dual plug Hemis; 2 port, 4 port Hilborns on blown Hemis, BBC & SBC to perfectly restored stockers. Thanks to all that showed!

    Good to see you again Vic. It was indeed a great night - hope you don't mind if I post a few of my photos. It was just great to see some stunning stockers in the mix too.

    Model 77s - the orange and metallic red cars are fiberglass, the others are real steel....

    Don Lennakers '41 has been in build for a few years - this had to be the baddest engine there - blown and injected Shotgun 429....

    Yep, the baddest of the bad were there and of course no Willys thread would be complete without the HAMB's own superbad Kiwi Kev and his Nasty Habit!

    This was there too - the late Jim Ellinger's all steel 1940 coupe with 541 ci Hilborn injected Keith Black hemi 6 speed. The car is stunningly engineered with attention to detail and fit and finish to match....

    I rode with Paul Rieker in his all steel, blown Hemi powered '33 Willys. He found this car stored in a warehouse. He made it streetable and has been having a blast with it. All of the Willys cars at this tribute nite were unbelievable. Thanks for the pics.
