The Mob roadster pickup with a set of headers that look like they're off of the Fiat...
No idea who took this...
Gotta be one of the Fuel Altered Nationals...Ed Moore going up against Johhny West in the "Plan A" car...

Well, it's the Fuel Altered Nationals in Tucson, 197?
Left to right;
Bill Pillow (Ed Moore's neighbor), Bob Cliff (crewman when the MOB was
in Tucson), Darrell Thompson (crew),
...and a cast of thousands...
is there a photo credit in the house?
Here's the Mob T Pickup early on, before acquiring the cowl over the rollcage...
Pictured here, the MOB's front airfoil and between rounds maintenance at the 1973 Fuel Altered Nationals.
The Mob in
the mid '70's...Note the stretch in the frame, the eyeball aero attempts
with the front axle wing
And here's Ed Moore standing it up at the March Meet, 1976
A color photo
of the above car. The Mob guys had a penchant for changing paint jobs

not look real rosy for Ed Moore right at this moment...and judging from
the size of the slicks,
Ed Moore and the ever-exploding MOB roadster at one of the PDA meets in the 1970's, this was their last qualifying attempt...Lee LeBaron is in the other lane behind all that smoke,,,quite a sequence here...
...looks like it's going straight...
Uh-oh...getting a little sideways...
Well, now Ed's doing a little driving here...
Let's try the other two wheels...
And as Ed said when he sent me these..."That's All!"
..for this run...
By the way, Ed moore sent me an e-mail after I posted this, and said "And we qualified on this run, too!"
Here's Ed getting ready for a run at OCIR, around 1973.
