(Right: Brian W. at NHIS, Vintage Celebration, 2005, updated
web site had been assembled to chronicle the rebirth of
a Champion. The featured 1983 Edmunds Midget was built and
campaigned by "Iron" Mike Scrivani Sr. and his
son Mike Scivani Jr. and driven to the 1983 ARDC
Championship as car #1 by Nick Fornoro Jr. The car was also
very successfully campaigned by Mike Scrivani and driven
by Hank Rogers Jr. in 1984, 86 and 87. (We are still putting
together a complete ownership / driver list).
We took possession of the car April 7, 2002 after it had
sat in a garage for many years. In August of 2003 we restored
the car and did some updating so that it could run safely
at current vintage events. A FOLLOW-UP RESTORATION is presently
underway (started July 2011) to completely restore the car
back to how it ran in 1983 when it won the Championship.
we are in need of a few things namely:
PHOTOS OF THE CAR FROM 1983, IN PARTICULAR OF THE HOOD &
- A EARLY 1980s CARRERA COILOVER SHOCK THAT WE CAN USE AS
- THE COVER FOR THE RR ADJUSTER
- A COMPLETE LIST OF WHO OWNED THE CAR / WHEN AND WHO DROVE
THE CAR / WHEN

replica of the original. And this is not applied

is high quality vinyl with a outdoor life of 5 -
7 years. Every vintage ARDC car should be carrying
one of these decals. I am selling these at cost,
$15.00 + shipping. I have personally paid the artwork
fee already, all you need to pay for is the generation
of the decal. We will make several at a time as
soon as enough orders come in to justify. These
are custom made. We will not be making 50 or 100
