FINALLY! The First Night!





Ed Moore, after splitting away from Dave Hough, continued to campaign in the Fuel Altered ranks.
Here's his Friendly Chevrolet sponsored AA/FA, with Rat power, and a Turbo 400 trans.
Never was able to make the automatic trans work like he wanted, so he went to the altered standard, direct drive

photographer unknown

Friendly Chev

Here's Ed Moore at Irwindale, getting ready to make a pass in the Friendly Chevrolet car...

The first MOB T, at Irwindale Raceway.

The initials MOB originally stood for "Moore, Oates, Bradley",
but the partners would change around as the years went by but the name stayed the same,
even when a partners name wouldn't fit. Why ruin a good name?

Bob Thompson photo

The MOB guys were a colorful bunch, that's for sure

A color photo of the above car. The Mob guys had a penchant for changing paint jobs quite often,
which may have been related to their penchant for blowing things up fairly often.

Life does not look real rosy for Ed Moore right at this moment...and judging from the size of the slicks,
he's movin' at a pretty good clip here...in the lights at OCIR!

Mob at OCIR

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...

By the way, Ed moore sent me an e-mail after I posted this, and said "And we qualified on this run, too!"
