    That is a very cool car! I hope I can still enjoy a car like that when I'm 90 :)
     
  8. Fat fingers, he's really 80, he's one of those people that never missed a step, still on the go go go, he built that car within the last few years.

    There's more going on with this car then it first appears. It looks to me like it's got a flip forward front end among other things. I like it.

    I love this Iconic photo the Cunningham Corvettes at Lemans in 1960.
    Although it was a great effort, only the # 3 car was successful, winning
    it's class.

  25. Now we're recycling pictures! the story as i remember was: the man is Mick Roberts, picture was taken in Black Oak (Gary) Indiana. The vette was his daily driver and weekend racer.
     
  26. Here’s the companion picture hanging by my bar, my Dad is the man kneeling in front of Mr Roberts. also a stub From the 1964 AHRA (?) nationals at US 30. I believe he won his class at the race. I apologize if I have butchered the truth here but that’s the story as I remember it.
