Michael Argetsinger's former Elden PH10B takes off this week for Watkins Glen. I'm sorry we didn't get it on track this crazy year, but I think it'll surprise some people in 2023 after its winter stay at the International Motor Racing Research Center.
In retrospect, I think Elden's image in the US was affected by the fact we Americans ran this little delightful cars on slicks rather than treaded tires in-period, when they were designed for the treaded tires that the class ran so perfectly on in the UK.
The short wheelbase and quick steering rack probably didn't mesh well with sticky slicks. I've seen many-a-bent Elden in my day.
... but in the world of vintage where treaded tires are the name of the game, I think we have a Historic Ford that might be an absolute contender in the years to come.
