Lauson S-350 Restoration
by Paul Moneski
- Curator's note: I was present at
the 1999 Constantine, Michigan, Super Meet where Paul purchased this
motor. Paul traveled to the meet from his home in Maryland with
his friends, brothers Robert & David Wagoner. Robert drove his
new Ford Expedition and they suggested to Paul that he attach the grubby
old almost unidentifiable motor to the trailer hitch and drag it
behind. Robert finally relented and the motor made it back to
Maryland, grease and grime intact.
