So did Ron buy the car from Dave Burrows to "flip" it, or to race it and his plans have now changed? Dave was recently selling it for around $20k as I recall...

Hi Rick - Its my understanding that Ron also owns a Datsun Roadster and has decided to keep only one car.

Fred -
The B in the book was rolled into a ball by Jerry Slick. Joe Senior built another B using may of the pieces from the original car and this is what if for sale. Confirmed by Joe, Joe and Joe.

As the story goes... the B is brought back into the pits and is a mess. Jerry walks over to Joe Senior and says, "The motor let go and I spun in my own oil." Joe Senior saying nothing, reaches into the car, turns the key and the motor fires right up!

Just a stab here- I'm wondering if 'stepboard' is the name of the people who prepped the head- kind of like a Comptune or Downton. Remember that this is a advertisement, and the person entering the information may have made a typo, misread copy, been a fnctional illiterate, or not known what the reference was about.

If you read the copy, Huffaker manufactured the radiator, close ratio transmission, and rear end. Yes, I'm sure he manufactured them. or maybe be rebuilt and tuned them, and they were manfactured by an MG supplier.

I guess when I read ad copy, I don't take it too seriously, especially when they talk in general terms like 'close ratio' rather than listing the actual ratios (which to me is much more helpful and descriptive)
