    Thanks for the insight on the AA/alterds rooman. I attended the HRR race at Famoso a half dozen years ago and being from the Midwest came away with a better appreciation of our West Coast racers. My heroes one and all.

    Scotty Scott ran out of Julius Hughes' Atlanta Speed Shop. Here is another shot of the car taken at the Greenville airport drags.

    My favorite Nanook was the one with the phaeton touring car body. Thinking outside the box.

    After the initial steel bodied Model A version all of the subsequent Nanook cars were turtledeck 23 T roadsters. The car that you are thinking about was run by the Burkholder brothers with Harry at the wheel.

    My bad Roo. The memory tarnishes over the decades. The engine was moved out further away from the rear axle and was a precursor to the longer wheelbase funny car style altereds with lower engine placement.

    the pure hell small block gives me hope that I can build a small block altered that looks as wild as that.

  17. I posted a photo of one of the Nanook altered earlier in this thread. That might be what @MikeVV was referring to.

  22. Those motor mounts look scary! I don't see a mid plate either. How'd the motor stay in it. I know top fuel use to use hose clamps to hold the motor in, but even a hose clamp seems stronger than this. I know the history of this car, and how well it ran, so I'm not knocking it, it just amazes me some of the stuff that works.

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere this was one of the first cars to use the block itself as part of the engine mounts.

    I think that black plate just sticking out from the bellhousing area is connected to the upper and likely lower frame rails. That is similar to my Logghe altered. But you're right - the right [read:wrong] set of circumstances could see a catastrophic engine failure (do those ever happen to AA/FAs? LOL) ending up with the engine on the pavement.

    I love the "cute" little trailer in the background. It looks like they were running BF/AA class that day.
