    It's air cooled. There are fins scattered on the cylinder heads.

    I recently saw this car at a local show. It is a Chevrolet. a '24 I think. It was raced in the area of Silver City and Virginia City , Nevada. The present owner discovered it in a barn in Reno while looking at old tractors. Not a lot is known except that is was driven by Ode Briddle. It runs and is in amazing condition. There are no plans to restore it.

    I know, I can't get this thing out of my mind. It lives less than 50 miles away and although the guy likes it it is not what he really likes. I'm hoping to make some kind of deal but I know others are thinking the same thing. I know he didn't pay much for it. It is really hard to put a $$ value on. Sorry but those are all the pictures I have. The engine looked stock. One exhaust port head. No special suspension regular 490 quarter elliptics. Nice speedster body. Only surface rust. Dang, I want it.

    If you don't get it, I hope someone else that appreciates it will. Good luck. Would like it myself.

    Well, it's not 1944, but many of these are before that.

  25. The 2017 Race Season has ended for us..We were plagued by intermittent valve train problems; but we avoided a DNS and a DNF at Monterey. After a visit to the pits at this, the last of the season, I rejoined to finish second from last. Unfortunately at Monterey, during the week's practices the car was running with the top five of the PreWar Groups! We've redone the whole valvetrain for next year!

    Old Dawg,
    Can you tell us a little bit about what you mean when you say "...running with the top five..."? Do you guys run qualifying laps, or just nerf it up in practice? I hope to join the vintage crowd some time and would like to know more about the degree of competitiveness on the track.

    Beautiful picture btw. Is that a rock face or cloud bank in the background?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^ My guess is the "Top Five" are GP Alfa Romeos and Bugattis, Peter Giddings being one of the drivers. Bob
     
  28. Good guess, Bob...Until this engine I would say: "I beat the Bugatti's and worry the Alfa's (including my friend Peter).. Up until the latter part of this season I could say that I would "beat the Alfa's (except the 35C's), the Bugatti's; and worry the ERA's.
     
  29. Depending on the sanctioning body, our starting grid for our Qualifying Race are set by our best lap times during practice. In our PreWar classes out on the West Coast there are just a few of us (Peter Giddings, of course, being one) that are driving our cars to near their (the car's) limits. We give extreme deference to those that are out on the track motoring around. Some of these machines are valued in the millions of dollars. The top finisher is not necessarily given the awards. At events like Monterey the cups go to those that put on the best all around show (including in the Paddock area).

    The photo was at Laguna Seca Raceway on the short chute between Turns Two and Three. What you seen in the background is an earth embankment!
    This award I won in 2015
