Comments: Wow, an honest to goodness authentic 494!....  At least that's what the hood says....    Hey, you don't suppose somebody was trying to pull a fast one on us here do you...  Looks like a little psychological pitside strategy...  Well whatever was really under the hood, it was probably real fast and at this point, real clean!

02/10/04 Jerry I remember Jim having 494 on a few of his hoods.  Wasn't he sponsered by Mullaney Tires for years along with Jack Ely who also ran Wall?
