Josh and Kevin Gill both put on a show in the #49 Sat ![ATTACH]
Here was a cool Model A based sprint car at the Show Down. [ATTACH] [ATTACH]
To say they put on a show would be an understatement !
I was there,too ! Total surprise to see race cars at the show down,no one told me anything about it. Happy to see Josh and the boys for sure !...
Thanks Zig Zag. Will check what is new at the link.
Zig Zag, does IMS have any of these type of photos online someplace? They keep changing their site every time I get used to what they have....
I agree! Post away!
Josh is alive and well and Working at Zakira`s Garage restoring race cars. He is more active on the racing pages on facebook at the moment. I`ve...
Looking at the before and after photos of the Ruby car to Super Mod,it strikes me as what a shame it was for so many of those cars. From beauty...
About the only big car show I get to anymore is the Hershey Fall meet.
Dan,I love the art.
Champcarstats calls Rubes 1962 car a Watson. If Christianson modified a Watson,it may have came to be called by his name.
It sure as Heck looks...
This is the car I was told is the Ruby car from 62,but I guess whoever told me was wrong then.
Troy Ruttman-1957 Indy 500.
Jim Not Jud, but Troy Ruttman-he drove a Watson in 1957.
Who built the Ruby 1962 car if it wasn`t a Watson, I wonder?
Jim Nise: I heard the Ruby 1962 car was the car Troy Ruttman drove at Indy in 1957.
I`m leaning on the driver on left being Ralph Hepburn after checking other photos of him at that age. Standing with his own car,that would fit.
Good call on Eddie Meyer,I didn`t notice that before.
Here are the results and field for the race.
Still doesn`t look like Arnold to me.
That`s neither here nor there to me though,as the Devore-Batten part of the photo is what I care about.
The fellow on the left does not look like Billy Arnold to me. However the track and the other driver IDs make sense to me.
Here is the rest of...
Anyone have some good photos of Sonny Ates? I had a request over on my page for him and I can`t locate any in my collection,although I should have...
Thanks, I just wanted to pin down that it was or wasn`t the same Builder. I know Kinser`s car was nothing similar to the one Rich...
Is that the same Mitchell that built the early Steve Kinser WoO car?
Van May playing in the dirt.
Wheel to wheel Van is coming through !
Do they get em dirty? Yep !
Are we having fun?...
Hi Al, Thanks.
I don`t know anything about that sweet Miller #11,except that I like it. Sorry you missed Latimore,it was quite a show.
Some of my Sprint car photos from the 2012 Williams Grove Oldtimers convention at Latimore Valley and Lincoln Speedway....
On that roadster,didnt Steve Chassey drive one something like that, Jet Engineering #10?
And Josh,That for keeping us posted on your activities...
I had one of these as a matchbox car when I was a kid. Also they used to have an oval track import class at Hershey Stadium back in the 60s and...
I guess not really a speed shop,but I used to live very close to Baldwin Motion, that was on Sunrise Highway.
Hey,glad I got you! I come back home wishing I had taken more"people pictures".
Hopefully next year I`ll lug that heavy ol` telephoto and have at it.
