Congrats to both Reggies!! You just knew this was coming!
That's the v8 version from Ilmor.

Indmar is a complete separate entity.

It happens that Ilmor is putting engines in ski boats. It's not the same as Indmar.

I know it is business and I know it happens but still.

I don't wish anyone bad but what about all of the people that suffered thru the tough financial times at Fountain especially the vendors, creditors, and employees? No one talks about them just Reggie!

Do you think maybe Liberty promised Reggie that they will do this and that for the company and now not delivering because they are full of BS?
Reggie has a clean slate now and everyone behind him.
Also feel that Fountain production is all but done as we know it.
A small downsized facility helps in todays economy.
The future is very bright for the 3 amigos.

Default Reggie's Future

Reggie was very good to me for over 20 years by letting me occupy space in his booth at both the Miami and Fort Lauderdale boat shows and even paid for a table and chair for my exclusive use and he would't even accept my offer to pay for these items.I will create a special insurance program for his new company ASAP as a way of repaying his generosity and I'm sure I will see him at Miami. I will help his new company any way I can.

Thats the MasterCraft line of engines that are produced in the Penske Race Shop where their NASCAR, IRL & Sporty Car Teams are housed. The V-10 line, IRL, ARCA & NASCAR Engines are built in Michigan.

Here you go guys , I'm not a fountain guy but they are made close to where I live ..Reggie if you read this I would like to point out the facility in Swansboro where Chris Craft and Tiara where made is still empty , and would make a beautiful new factory for you . Then I would have some new a$s to spank around here ! LOL !
