Do you know if they'll have it next year at Santa Margarita?

No idea, but the inaugural event seems to have been a success, so hopefully.

Well that makes at least two cars that ran Joe Panek’s Roto-Faze blower manifold. The other that I’m aware of was the Winged Express, but they only ran it for a short while. The manifold had tall, individual runners with a pop-off valve on each one.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

Think Bennie Ozborn ran one for a while?

Don’t know about Benny, but I did find out that they ran one on the Bones, Dubach and Pisano ‘33 Willys gasser. Panek said fuel distribution was more even and you could run without staggered nozzles along with a host of other claims. Never really seemed to catch on, I imagine there were visibility issues with FED’s.

I have a photo somewhere of an FED with one on it in '69, I was thinking it was Bennie, but I havent looked at that photo in a LONG time, so I could very WELL be wrong. I will try to find it.

EDIT: It wasn't where I thought it was, I will take a better look tomorrow, hope I can find it, I want to know now!
