Please Correct the Title, his last name was spelled Meaney.


Many thanks. Checking back, it is wrong in SO many places including here.

Ralph used to work on my 72 911T in Kirkland, Wa. His glass case was full of trophies,pictures and memorabilia from his glory days. Ralph was a straight shooter and had no problem sucking $500 bills from my wallet with no seeming effort. At that time (1982) I had no idea of what a successful racing career he had, because he never talked about it. His glass case did the talking. That was the kind of guy he was.

This thread got me thinking..

When Ralph moved away from Massachusetts, he sold off a lot of stuff he
didn't think he would be needing.
Parts and Cars alike..

I ended up with a couple of things....

First was a rear shift rod for my 6, that was modified so you could use an early aluminum sand cast engine case and clear the castings on the early engine.

And a set of headers that were a backup set for one of his cars..
They were new when I bought them..

If I had only bought the GT he sold off.
