    Given to me by the man himself in Feb 1987.
    It is out of Don's AA/FD that was the first pass ever over 200 MPH at Great Meadows in NJ.
    My most prized collectable

      Famous means a lot of people know about it. I've never seen it, so it's not famous. Cool, maybe. Not famous.

          Guess 'famous' might not be the right word ... historic could have been a better choice.

          Yes, Dropped a valve in the lights ...
          He said it was 'well worth it' and it was easy for me to agree with him. wink.png

          It's a full thick skirt like a friggin diesel piston, weighs a 'ton'. 'Slug' is a good word for that. lol

          Anything from the large father is super cool.
          Mine is not as famous as yours, but it's the only Hemi piston I have. Found it cleaning out an old Chrysler Plymouth Dealership years ago. Melted ring lands. Nitrous?
