Comment by Mark Miller
Old picture of what the LUMP looked like for many years. Had too much fun driving it and it was very reliable. Drove to INDY'96 when it looed like this. Second picture is of the TWM prototype manifold that were tried on my car with triple SK 45 carburetors. Really woke the tored old LUMP up! Third picture is of the hard rtacing-style front suspension bushing I have made for years to improve the hhandling of the MGC.
