    Reggies Glastron Moli

    The only 21' twin Glastron/Moli I ever saw Reggie run was a white hull with red metalflake stripes that he pulled with a similarly colored Corvette. This was the first boat I ever saw him run and I remember thinking....."Now here's a showoff".

    Come to think of it, I never really changed my opinion.

    T2x
    20 Foot Switzer Wing 2 X S3000 (Dust'n the Wind II)
    18 Foot Switzer Wing 2 x 1250 BP's (Miss Diablo)
    15 foot Powercat 15C (2 X Merc 1500) (The Ghost)
    (Single engine boats are lacking something)

    !7 Ft Molinari Evinrude CCC (Gold Dust)
    (The exception proves the rule)
    Obsolete and Proud of it

    Yes.......that's the hull I remember too..........this was the same hull that was in a photo inset in Mercury's 1974 product brochure

    Bob Hammond

    I talked to Bob during the EAA flyin a year ago. Hadn't seen him in probably 20 years and he didn't look any different than he did then.

    First shot is Havasu, 1970.....white and light, driven by Bill Petty and Tinker Collinge. By the way, wasn't Tinker the first Glastron Team driver for the single?

    Second is Reggie, Havasu 1971.....his first year of racing. It's not a color picture, but carries the #74 (not his famous #76) which makes me think this is his first boat. I don't remember a red & black and I thought he ran the traditional yellow with black at that race, but this one might be white with red. The third shot is him winning the Nationals in 1972, appears to be the same paint scheme with a number change (maybe that's when he went to white with red).

    Bill

    The 1970 Havasu boat was the one I mentioned. It was the second "Light Weight" and was white with red. I said earlier red & black but I was wrong (again) White boat w/ red stripes I think. Anyway, That was the boat we set up in April 71 and I raced it at Galveston and I think one other, can't say for sure. Bob and I got crossways about that time over my attitude toward Rudy Ramos and the race team was disolved. Bob GAVE the boat to Reggie and Harold helped him for time on setup ect.
    As for Tinker, who was a class act of his own, He first drove for us at Parker in 69. He was my relief. Drove Harold crazy !!! I was 5' 10" 135# and Tinker was 6' ??" 250# + Toward the 3:00 PM mark I blew a lower unit and the trim went out on one engine. In the pit for repair Tinker was screaming "pin that engine in the 5th hole & I was screaming 2ond hole !!! Anyway we survived. Finished 6th and had a ring side seat to see Bobby Witt do his thing at the finish line. Talked to him last week and we had a good laugh about the finish. Tinker might have driven a single with Dick Sheera & Art but Gene Piehl was the single driver for the Austin factory team.

    Reggie's 21

    Does anybody actually know where this hull actually is at this time? Also, I noticed that nearly all of the photos of this boat show engines with the traditional "wrap-around" cowls on the back. I'd swear that the photo inset in the 1974 Mercury sales brochure shows Reggie's boat with T2 type "drop over" cowls on the back. Can anyone elaborate on this configuration?

    You are right that the Hi-Performance brochure shows Reggie's boat with a TII, but it's not his 21' twin Glastron/Molinari..... it is a 17' single engine Molinari.

    Reggie's 21 - Drop On Cowls

    Willabee -

    No..........it's not the same photo..........if you look in the fishing motor brochure, Mercury brags about it's U-U & T class national championships and it shows (2) photo insets........one with Bob Hering in a wood sprint Molinari and the other is Reggie's Red/White 21 with engines that have some type of T2 drop on cowls............I'll try to find the catalog in my old keep sake outboard stuff box.

    I saw Wings in 2 of the videos.. the one of Testing at Parker from 1974 was
    Bob Massey in his #140 The other one #T414 I did not recognize from any of the
    photo records I have seen but was in the Northwest Racing 71-72 video.

    I thought Bobby Massy was killed at Elsinor Ca. in 1970 driving the first "S" hook that Renato brought to Havasu ??? Some one help my memory here.
    Thanks, Fielder
