Tom Hoover's early ride

Ran across this picture while helping my wife clean and I thought some might find it interesting. It's an underhood shot of Tom Hoover's '57 Plymouth convertible. (For the youngsters, Tom was the engineer behind the development of the 426 hemi.) This was his "drive to work" car, but it also held both ends of the C/GA record. It's a 392, but the interesting feature is the fabricated ram intake. Looks even better in color, but I've lost my slide. Guess I'll have to help the wife clean some more.

No, different Tom Hoover. I think that Tom Hoover even drove the Ramchargers dragster a few times, which is quite a coincidence.

I consider my site an "ebook." It receives more than 200 new visitors each week. Unfortunately, I don't make any money from it, but that's all right. I don't have that much life ahead of me, anyway.

I started to write an autobiography...not for publication, but for my descendants..., but, when I reached my life as a young man, I realized how totally disgusting I was when God saved me and decided I'd rather not reveal that to anyone.
