I thought Mayf's car was a Turbo/Blown Car? Or was that a prior incarnation?

  Well, it is almost that simple.  The red hat speed is 260 mph and I
wont be going that fast ever.  But the class was open when I started so
I decided to go with the fuel class.  Yeah, I used a 100 octane fuel
available at the Rebel gas stations until I killed some pistons.  Then I
got smart and started using some of Ricks A8C gasoline.  Nothing
inexpensive about it for sure. But it works well.  And I will fill my
small drum with it at WOS for here at home in the off season running.
But basically what you said is correct.
