He beat the Chrysler ramchargers engineers in the plymouth 392 with the 270 in fact to win the trophy one year. How about that !!! I think mopar engineers got or took whole idea for ram induction from him .

The D-500 was also a car of renown and some members have indicated that they have/had a similar car in the past. Any help out there? John...
I have a `56 Dodge D-500 and once obtained a link to "Fear The Flags" which was a great article about the history of the `56 D-500. I have been unable to find that link lately and I wondered why. Was it removed, and if so, is there another site that I can access to get it?
