Long time friend, the late Nick Cirino, built this '30 roadster with sponsor ship from Jim Steele's Durfee Auto Parts. Seen here at the 1960 March Meet with the just added blower on the big Olds. Nick adapted the Hilborn port injection to the top of the blower. Nick told me, years later, he did it because there was no money in the budget for a proper injector for the blower. Must have worked. He ran over 150 with it.
Roadster pick ups forever!

I really don't remember anything about this roadster other than I took the pic at Pomona a whole lifetime ago.  :-[

There's something about a Model A built for the drags !   Henry's lady sure was a popular base for drag racers for many years.

Of course there's the 22jr thread:  http://hotrodcraft.com/index.php?topic=934.0
