Those are awesome photos, especially that last one! Man, I can't believe they had the stones to go that fast in those things.

Thanks for posting them.

Wow... This is awesome. The chassis pics at the top are just great to see. They will really help me in taking some chassis decisons for my roadster.

Thanks, Magnus

Jimmy, they are some of the best pics I've seen of the cars of the "three spring" era.

We are all better off now we've witnessed these pics.

Thanks for that.

Doc, these photos aren't mine to sell so I cant really answer that. I can ask Curt if he wants to do something as they were His Dad's.
