Hey, Hardy! Thanks for the testimonial. Thanks to all, I got my
distributor and starter motor. For anyone interested in the Spitfire
Race Car, here's the history of the car:
I tracked down Bob Coan and talked to him about the spitfire for a
bit.  He purchased the car from a gentleman out of Florida who owned
Fuel Safe, They make fuel cells, as you know.  He said the guy put
$25K into the car.  He said it was a well built car, but it had no
connection to his dad (Jim Coan) or Kas.  I was really hoping it had
some period racing history, I still think it is a bargain at $5000.
