In the past, I've used a cork gasket to take up the slack. Seemed to work fine

When I bought my speedster , I quickly found out that the car had been in a horiffic accident. it had struck a tree at a high rate of speed which drove the engine back thru the firewall. A fire ensued. The car was left outside for many years. A fellow found the car and put a convensional frame under it, a cowl from a cabriolet or phaeton and a non s/c engine. This all went well for him untill he tried to mount the manifolds. The project stopped there.
I found a speedster frame , cowl and a s/c engine. I am told the car will not certify. So I didn't try. I recieved a first junior and a second senior, because of a points deduct of not being certified.

Curt,
Let's have a talk in Auburn about certification. Also as far as I know judging has never deducted points because a car is not certified.

The certification process seems very subjective, reliant on questionable historical information and because of that is probably more of a liability for the club than a value. Maybe a simpler certification approach might work but lacking complete public historic records it's a liability for the club. Just my opinion.

Are there any other clubs that certify the cars? IE. Rolls, Packard, etc. ?
