    Default Quincy Looper Pictures and Collections

    There are many Looper collectors out there. These particular pictures were taken at the big AOMC meet at Lake Shipp, Florida, in 2003.

    The first picture is taken from the Ted Miller Looper collection. It consists of A, B and C Loopers.

    The 2nd & 3rd photos are of an A Looper owned and restored by Bob Dunlap. It was previously owned by Mercury engineer Bill Ela. Bill won the 1970 Class A Runabout championship with this engine.

    The 4th photo is a D Looper owned and restored by Bob Dunlap. It was previously owned by Rusty Lloyd and put together by Bud Parker. It has the 2nd Eldridge lower unit ever made.

    If you have Looper pictures, please post them here so we can all enjoy these racing engines.

    thanks,
    Paul A. Christner

    I never thought I would see a photo of that motor again. Bill only ran runabouts and I ran that motor many times on a hydro. That year in 1970 during testing Bill went upsidedown. I had scattered the B I was going to run. Bill came to me and asked if I would go out on the 5 minute (3 minute??) gun for BH and test it for him. I did. I got kind of caught up in the heat of things. I ran out in front until the last corner until I regained my senses. I came in and Bill said "I guess it runs". Then he went out later that day and won ARR. I did qualify that same motor in 1969 at the NOA Championships in Forest Lake, Minnesota, as an A on my 11' short sponson Sid. No DQ this time. But the finals were blown out and moved to Texas.

    Default Depue

    That pic of the six at Depue was Howard Anderson's FRR. I have one similar taken at Lawrence Lake. And yes I would like to copy this if you don't mind. I'll scan some of it running and post them soon. I'm sure I can scrounge something up.

    Default Flatheads Forever

    This was taken at Lawrence Lake in 1988. Howard andBobby Sandvig riding deck were over the record on a couple of occasions, but there is no record for 4 and 3/4 miles. He finally got the record (at age 72) with the Konig on the back. It is the only 1100 Runabout record that Terry "The Duck" Klem doesn't own. The mile and 2/3 isn't run anymore.

    Default New Pics of Outboard Collection (Loopers & Others)

    Everyone dreams (at least us racing enthusiasts) of having a big toy box full of racing and other outboard engines. Please enjoy the following pictures from someone's private toy box. To have a little fun, how many of the motors can you accurately identify?

    thanks,
    Paul Christner

    Default Nice Toy Box

    I recognized an early Konig 2-banger Aor B (I believe), a Crescent Super C or 500, the photo is a Konig FA (2 piper, last of the FA lne before the VA's were introduced), a big bore Konig VD or VE probably, an Anzani A or B, a Quincy 700 or D and lot's of old iron....

    Default My Old Motors--

    Pic no. 1 looks like My "M"-Evinrude.

    Pic no. 2 looks like my first race engine a Quincy modified "D" deflector purchased from Ray Nydahl when he went to the Loopers.

    Pic no. 5 looks like my "C and "D" loopers.

    Number 7 looks like an SR, but I'm thinking completely square heads and cylinders makes it a Hubbell SR and not a pure Johnson
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.
