Thank you, Jacques Dresang, for his research on the Tanner H-Mod’s he just acquired. The Tanner T2 driven by Frank Isaacson, named the Lyne Special, who also drove and owned the ERMA/SIAM. Jacques reached out to Franks daughter, Eve Prebil and she was gracious to share some history and valuable information on both the Tanner and the ERMA/SIAM
The ERMA/SIAM was built by Purdue students between the 1953-1954. Frank Isaacson was a student at Purdue graduating in 1955. Eve suggests that he may have been involved in the build of the ERMA as Frank had “built his first car age 15”.
Frank Isaacson raced ERMA, Experimental Racing Motors, orange #33 from 1958-1960 per:
Thank you, to Eve and the Isaacson family for this invaluable history,
