The Jalopy Journal
Sure looks like a Pinto front end.
Parnelli Jones got his start here. Uae to see him race every Sunday in the 50's.
H & H Garage. This was the first blown dragster I ever saw run. 'The Beach' at night. Seemed like it was only 10-15 feet away. Spectator side...
I like this guy.
I want that Fiat
The end of the shut-down area looks a lot safer than a sand trap.
The more I look at it you might be right. The big ding in the roof looks like the shape of a triangle roll bar.
This is one well proportioned Crosley. It's harder to do than it looks. Saw it at Pomona one time I think. Really like it
I think maybe Chuck Griffiths. Maybe.
I'll bet this didn't happen on a drag strip. Port injectors, straight axle and no roll bar?
You're right. As speeds & ET's started to improve in this time period the sidewinder design wasn't doin' what it was supposed to be doin'....
Looking at the cars in the background & the phone#, kind of establishes some sort of time frame. I think that Crosely for that time period is a...
You might have started something here. It's probably impossible to find many 'survivors'. If any. Barrett-Jackson, Pebble Beach in years to come...
A little too close to the fence for LIONS, San Gabe or Fontana. 'BIG' raced everywhere in those days. The white pipe will eventually give us the...
I remember Frank Pedregon used to 'light 'em up' from time to time. Many theories on this one.
To see this car in person was somethin' else. Kent Fuller (I think), Road Kings' arena.
Many flag starters had their own 'styles'. That's a story in itself.
I can smell & hear this picture.
I want this car.
Thanks Dean. Thanks Dave. Professional golfer? I'm gonna' let that one soak in for a little while. Hey, why not. A lot quieter & safer sand traps...
Does anyone out there have any pictures of Eddie Potter's wicked looking Comp Coupe? Back in the early 60's I bought a few 'used, used' parts from...
Pretty rough. It also looks like the plug wires could get a little warm at speed.
His cars always had the 'right look'. Great proportions, great workmanship and simplicity.
Yep, Yep & Yep. Thanks.
These guys were real bad ass. Experimenting with exotic fuels, almost zero real safety and so on.
I'd love to see this car at Pebble Beach. Do a great job if you get to it.
A lot of work. Very well done. Best I've seen. Haven't seen a lot of those covers in many, many years. Thanks Richard.
