The racing community lost one of the best engine guys in the country yesterday (Sunday)

My brother ran his motors for 20 years.

God Speed Ralph.

I am so shocked to hear this. I worked for Ralph for 6 years in the late 80's and early 90's. He was a very nice person and very smart at what he did. I learned more from him in a few years about engines and dyno testing than I could have learned on my own in a lifetime. He will be greatly missed. R.I.P. Ralph

If anyone has more information about the funeral please call me at 561-818-3377.

i remember him, back in the mid 70's we were running super stock and they had gotten one of the first sunnen ck 10's i think that is right anyway we had our block trucked to them truppi/kling ( spelling is probably wrong) to have it honed, the car picked up and we had that decal of theirs on the fender t/k up until we sold it.

Remember this a Barrett Jackson

http://www.dragracecentral.com/drcstory.asp?ID=110765

1970 Chevelle LS6. The star of the auction for drag fans was the former Truppi & Kling Chevelle.
This is the car that Ray Allen drove to wins at the US Nationals, The Super Nationals, The World
Finals and most of the division races that he entered in 1970. The car has received a frame-off
restoration that was mostly supervised by Ray himself and had just 61 miles showing on the
odometer. The Chevelle was sold with its original New Jersey title still in Truppi & Kling's name.
It also came with its original build sheet and various magazine and National Dragster articles.
Surely the most expensive Chevelle ever sold. Final selling price including buyer's fee:
$1,242,000.

That just shows how long it's been since I've been to that part of Central Jersey.
