Recollections of a Ramcharger, Part 26: SAE Museum

by Mike Buckel, Ramcharger • courtesy of the North Georgia Mopar Club

Let us depart from the history stories for a quick trip to the Chrysler Museum on April 30, 2012. The Mid-Michigan Section of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) invited the Ramchargers to discuss the engineering innovations we introduced to drag racing.

Team Community Event Recreation Competition

Normally these meetings attract about 20 people. This meeting attracted over 200 people and we had to make our presentation twice because the theater would only hold 100. In addition many senior Chrysler executives were in attendance. Eighteen cars were invited, and all but two clones (High and Mighty and the '64 Super Stock) were either class winners and/or national record holders. Attached are a sample of photos from the event.
