The Mercury Texmo MOTH, powered by three Mercury Outboard engines, pictured here as it fired up at the Gold Cup in Detroit. The MOTH was never fast enough to challenge the top unlimited although it could manage speeds in the straights above 150 mph. It did not have the all out speed required and was not able to get through big turns of the unlimited circuit. The boat was driven by Buck Thornton.
