    Have you already been in contact with Jeff Mello who now owns the chassis ? It seems you both have the same info about the injector.

    I know of a Dave Dangerfield here in the N.E. Ohio area and I believe this would be his father's car. Cool pics!

    GOATROPER02, saw your 1931 Model A in Boardman this fall out on 224. That engine idling at the light caught my attention before ever looking to see the actual car. That Olds mill sounded sweet.
