Here's a photo taken that same day in 1955:
I bought a bunch of early olds parts off a well known racer who owns a blower shop. One item i bought, a complete ALGON injection setup was off a alcohol injected Olds in A Willy's that won 71 winter nationals. But I've also got pictures that came with of it on this motor during rebuild, and appeared in Rodders Journal write up of this car. Correct me if I'm wrong.....
Tom McIntyre brought the #990 Streamliner out to El Mirage in August of 2018:

Was doing some "housekeeping" of my photo archives today and realized I never posted these circa 1999 - 2004 photos of the #990 'liner ...
... circa 1999:

... and at the 2004 CHRR in Bakersfield (2 days before Tom McIntyre acquired the car):

The really cool thing, is Tom hauls the 990c around with Mickey Thompson's old ramp truck.
And it was not a static display, Tom drove it hard on the lake bed
He never left the keys in the ignition at the shoot.
Tom McIntyre brought his Rolling Bones Deuce 3wd and the #990c 'liner to the T.R.O.G. Santa Barbara Drags:

I got to re paint the hand brushed numbers a few years ago after the restoration.
