    Default Centurion v drive and a Brendella jet

    Hello, I understand you may have knowledge of the 1977 Centurion v drive pickle fork? mine has side wings and the small bottom pod in the center. I also have a 82 Brendella jet with a berkeley. both need lots of work. do you know how they performed in their day? what are the pros and cons? I want to restore atleast one but if they sucked I'll take the parts and run. any information would be great. I can call you also if you prefer. does anyone know where to find any pictures of a nice v drive one? Thanks in advance. Roger

    I don't know how many they built, but the only one I know of that they raced was a BGF-Virgil Fields and Little Beaver. It was suppposed to lift the tail like a hydro and ride on the front of the sponsons. It didn't work very well and I think they only ran it at Oakland and maybe one other time.
