    Years later it was restored and became an instant hit on the nostalgia racing circuit. It was bought by Jerry Moreland and then donated to the Garlits Museum

    Shores & Hess AA/A

    EDIT: ADDED INFO

    What appears to be a classic A/Gas Supercharged showdown is actually the AA/Altered final at Riverside’s HOT ROD Championships. Ed Kohler’s huge holeshot was wasted by a burned piston, giving Ron Mandella both the class trophy and a free pass into Super Eliminator—which Mandella also won for Shores & Hess, overtaking Bob Pickett’s blown Corvette with a 9.56 at 144.60. Though local Anglias were already running Division Seven points meets as Super Gassers on a “test” basis, HRM’s rules honored NHRA’s nationwide wheelbase minimum of 92 inches.
