Wow. Hemis, Mercedes Gullwing, Custom Pickup, chopped 34 3 window, diggers, Caddy pushers, pillarless GM wagon, driver hot rods, 59 El Camino, etc., etc., etc. If you can't find something in that pile you love, you ain't breathing.

On the flat boxer type engine, I cannot remember for sure, but I remember my Dad talking about dragsters with Continental, Lycoming, and Franklin flat aircraft engines. I cannot remember for sure, but this is likely one of those. Someone might remember this car. I am pretty sure this photo was taken at Victoria (Aloe).

Also, almost any photo of a car or dragster with lettering from some outside state was taken either at Green Valley or Victoria. Victora, TX had some of the largest money shows around at that time. Lots of large events took place in Victoria.

Not only the clarity, but the subjects of these photos are A-1.
