    Going through my father in laws old papers and he has this folder for the blower he put on his 29 hot rod. I just took some pics because I thought some of you may find all these old papers interesting.

    Is that is the same company that moved up to Vancouver and produced a glass Porsche and now a single person electric car?

    You do have a hold of some very valuable history there @zz29...don't ever separate it. Can't wait for you to unveil that hotrod under wraps...wow. Thats some fancy math going on there as well.

    Thank you for sharing these...

    Thanks for posting all these pictures, especially the one of your father-in-law's engine. His car and his engine are the result of a lot of very creative thinking during his many years of ownership. When I was building my roadster many years ago, I could always count on him for help in making good mechanical and aesthetic decisions. When my car was finally driveable, we traveled a lot of miles together. Thanks again for sharing the pictures. HFH.

    There are like 20 pages of math, but I doubt he did that. He is a bit dyslexic. I don’t know where he got all that and why it was needed to install the blower.

    It’s part of the set up that holds the hood up. The white doo hickey is connected to a rod that connect to the hood. It slides on the little struts.

    Really? He’s still around but unfortunately Alzheimer’s has gotten the best of him. We are the caretakers of the cars now.

    Thoughts are with you and the family on your father in laws deteriorating condition.

    Hopefully you can still have some connection to his brilliance that created such an awesome Hotrod in light of caring for him in this unfortunate life altering condition.

    He must have put that through the paces on occasion as power was obviously part of the big picture.

    Thanks again for sharing your story and experience and a belated welcome.

    I look forward to your continued unfolding of this mans connection to what we love around here.

    Look at those math equations, all done before calculators!! Rodders Journal did a feature on S.CO.T blowers a while back, might be interesting for you.

    Cool stuff that brings back some memories. When I was 13 or 14 I spent a couple o weeks in Gold Bar Wa with my Step grandparents who ran a shingle mill there on the east end of town. Across the highway was a shop of some sort where a guy in his late 20's early 30's had a batch of speed parts laying out on a picnic table for sale and one item was a S C O T T blower that I think was set up or a flathead. It was still way too spendy for a 13 year old who was making spending money picking raspberries in a near by field. I packed shingles at the mill but don't think I got paid or that. That was my first contact with real speed parts that wren't on a car at a car show.
