03/10/05 Scott Pacich I didn't realize the aero age had started. The engine cover side panels onthis car actually bulged out and covered the radius rod mounts. Never noticed that.   I also did not know that "Glen" had lettered this car.  He wasan absolute master at hand painting.
03/17/05 Bob Scott The rain shortend race was 1974 that Osman won in the Statewide 3 Mulligan car that was stopped 5 laps short of the 100 lap distance.  Merv Triechler the 2nd place finisher was also POed as he would of would have passed Osman in the next few laps.....Balough's car was also a Mulligan frame.. 1975 was the year Toby Tobias won..

03/19/05 Anthony Ferraiuolo You both know your dirt history. Gary went to the "Spring Sizzler" in 1974
and loved the way the asphalt guys had side covers on the cars. The car was built in our shop on a Mulligan frame strictly for Syracuse (as you can see hood didn't fit fuel injectors ).

Glenn was our letterer of choice (in a league of his own ). Billy Osmun won it in a Mulligan car with "A" frames.
