Way cool! I'd wrestle ya over that fuse kit... :)
And thats the only other uop Shadow sticker in that design that Ive ever seen except the one on my toolbox...
Is that a dash plaque from the Questor Grand Prix? May I see the rest of that AAR certificate or whatever it may be?

That’s Bob Tarozzi’s business card at AAR during the 1970 trans am season.

That is Bob’s pit pass from the 71 Questor Grand Prix. The one where Swede wrecked hard and was in hospital driving a Plymouth powered Eagle entered by Bob and Bruce Junor. Keith Black motor I believe.

This is that card with Bob’s race file/brief-case he took to races.

I came across some more vintage stuff. I really like the carburetor trouble shooting guide. You look for the problem at the top, and then you look in that particular column for number one. If that doesn’t fix the problem you go to number two then three and so on.

I redid my display shelf and got more vintage Mopar NASCAR stuff on it.

Small block timing cover milled out for larger diameter vibration damper. And back is milled down to account for thickness of motor plate. Off Petty chassis that was restored to earlier race history when had Hemi.

Steering gear output shaft is completely sheared off. Superspeedway hit?

One of the fuel pumps is twisted back from some impact.

Found some cool vintage 40's/50's cast aluminum and stamped steel toys at a garage sale recently. I also dug out all my models that have been in totes for 15+ years and made some shelves out of old barn boards.

I found a couple of shelf units to put some of my collection on. One of them had a frame for a sign. I cut a piece of wood to fit the frame, painted it black, and added these decals

I got a catalog with Dinah Shore on the cover ……somewhere.
I thought the decals would add to the nostalgia. I can remember seeing them all over.

I came across these nice Snap On current meters. At 5 bucks for the pair I couldn’t pass them up. One is for alternator output and the other for starter pull. You just lay the appropriate wire in the bracket on the back.
