hey i remember that car. i met the guy one time but dont remember his name. he ran out of campbells speed shop for a while. i saw it there one time with the hood off. i remember he had somekind of offenhauser manifold that i had never seen before or since with monster 4 barles on it. believe it or not he ran this car on the street some. fastest thing i had ever seen and still streetable. if i can think of his name i,ll let you know.
im pretty sure that was david riley; he worked at campbells speed shop and then ran po boys speed shop both in columbia. yes that was one bad ford and he did drive it on the street in eau claire where his grandmother lived. you could hear him coming a mile away!! as well as i remember the front u-joint snapped one day at blaney and he endoed and totaled the car! david died of heart failure at around 58 years old.
