Randall E. Roe replied to Phil Lampman's discussion Looking for a pair of these for the Blue Blaster Restoration
"Hi, I think the chrome ones are a lot more obscure than the white plastic ones, unfortunetly. If you can't find any, one avenue that might be an option, is one of the places that rechromes auto dash guage panels for restorations. Pick…"

Randall E. Roe replied to Steve Wilkie's discussion Allison engines. What's the differance?

Randall E. Roe replied to Steve Wilkie's discussion Allison engines. What's the differance?

Randall E. Roe replied to Gordon Main's discussion Miss Supertest3
"Actually the rather ironic rules negated the  U.S. boats that ran Merlins, even though Packard Merlins were built in Detroit! While british built Griffons were ok'd to use because Canada was considered British commenwealth."

Randall E. Roe replied to Peggy Kwiatkowski's discussion The Gold Cup Room at the Whittier Hotel in Detroit, MI
"I think you should donate it to the Museum or APBA. but thats just me. The whittier was right across the street from the old pit area, so I would guess that a lot of the teams stayed there."
