Default Dizzys everyday, and a free distributor giveaway.

The last two weeks I’ve been sorta swamped with distributors. Thought I shoot a photo of today’s variety. There is three rather rare 32 v-8 distributors on the bench for Tommorow to be converted with 68 internals on two and 11a on one.

A fellow v-8’er bought a 68 series 37-41 distributor from us rebuilt last year. He unfortunately found out he had cancer and sold his 40 Tudor. He sent the distributor back with a note that stated give this away to someone whom needs it. So, here I am giving it away. So the first person that responds with a 1940 that would be to strap it to their engine will get it free. My only stipulation is that you post a photo of the car it will be installed on so that I can mail it to him for his gratification . So first person that responds with a photo of their 40 gets it.

Deuce roadster, looks as though it’s yours! Pm me your name and address and it’ll be heading your way. I hope you use and abuse it as intended

Man, I can't think of two more-deserving '40s than Mike's ("deuce roadster") beautiful pair. And what a beautiful thing that Michael Driskell's most-unfortunate friend has offered to do here. A really touching story in the midst of a very unfortunate situation. Hoping for the absolute best for the donor. And a "first class act" (as usual) that Michael Driskell has facilitated for the folks involved. DD
