Women in motorsports… need we say more? These nine women do some awesome things in this industry. This is now the fourth Women in Motorsports class we’ve been fortunate to feature. Each year, we have such amazing conversations with equally incredible women doing kickass work in our engine building and racing industry. Some have been at this stuff their whole lives, while others more recently found how rewarding this work can be, but each of them contribute greatly to the fabric that makes up this tight-knit community. Come meet Tricia Musi of Pat Musi Racing Engines, Hannah Maloof of Maloof Racing Engines, Katie Coleman of LinCo Diesel Performance, Felicia Cherisse Smith/4drrckt, Kayla Blood Granger of Monster Jam, Janine Shoffner of J2-Racing, Jillian McLaughlin of Precision Machine Engine, Johnna Dunn of Jim Dunn Racing, and Mattie Graves of Hollyrock Customs. https://www.enginebuildermag.com/2022/07/women-in-motorsports-2022-class/

This belonged to my father and he was a mechanic. I am trying to find out who might be interested and/or know something about it. I do not have room to keep it, so I am hoping to find someone that would enjoy, appreciate the notion of it. I also have the original booklets that came with the 4 way condenser tester instruction book by United Motors Service, Detroit, MI and the Koilster Instructions. I'd appreciate any information and/or interest.
