  2. VERY cool clip. Image being a young gearhead sitting in a theater somewhere in the midwest and that came on the screen!?
     
  3. That's Willie Young, driver of the Kenz & Leslie 777 liner receiving the trophy at the .30 mark of the film.

    Impressive clip . # 777 has a 46 ford as a push car. I have a 46 sedan delivery that is supposed to have been a Kenz & Leslie shop car. Sure would like to see more shots like this with a better shot of the pusher.

    Not the greatest, but I think this is it behind the #777 in 1956. From my current thread on the HAMB - https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum...pics-from-the-lindsley-family-take-2.1201261/

    As I recall, in 1957 when they went 270, they were using Vic Edelbrock's 150 mph 32 roadster as a push car.
