If you read my other posts you will find that I a m a sincere person, not one to weave a tall tell. I thought I would just mention that because what I
am about to tell you is very strange, and I probably wouldn't believe it either, except that my dad told me this and he is absolutely a trust worthy
Well here goes nothing.
I grew up near Charlotte nc, in a town called rock hill sc. It's about 20 min south of Charlotte. Well my dad and his buddies were really into
racing, like NASCAR, even before it was NASCAR. They would go to races in Lancaster sc, which is where there is a dirt track, kind of a minor league
race track, but still taken very seriously. If I'm not mistaken it is still in operation.
Anyway.one of my dads buddies came up with a carburetor that supposedly made race cars get incredible mpg, while keeping their speed. My dad said it
was something like 60 mpg.
Here is where it gets weird. I can't remember his name, but I want to say Guy was it. After some huge successes, someone showed up at his house and
bought the the carburetor, all parts and any drawings and such for what my dad called a heap of money. His friend moved away, I'm guessing because he
had the money to, and I'm also guessing that this carburetor was locked away somewhere.
This was in the late 50s, early 60s.
That is all I know of the story.
