    They all didn't end up going in a straight line.

  12. Johnny Roberts stude powered crosely super mod. 1957. Ionia Speedway, Ionia michigan at the big 1/2 mile track at the fairgrounds. This is argueably the first super mod in west michigan. It was bad fast so I am told. My time sheets from the race tell the same thing.

    Here is George Potter with his finished 49 Hotshot. It has a warmed up engine, with dual carbs, dual pipes and 1/4 race cam. He tricked out the rims by widening them to 4 inches to accept wider tires. He took 1 1/2 inches out the windshield to get a lower profile, filled the seams and and added a woodgrain dash. The header he made, as shown in the engine picture, tied 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 together, which he said made it sound like a couple of Harley's. He remade them, connecting 2 & 4 and 1 & 3 together, now it sounds sweet.

    Hard to beleive that no one posted a pix of Pete Kaisers Great Pumpkin from Amherst, Ma. at Wilmington,Oh. Blown flathead powered.
    Also, here's another shot of the white Crosley at Wilmington.

    I just found this thread. I rode several times with Dave Lukkari in his Crosley. We were in the Tourin Tin car club. He was one of a kind. Just like his Crosley.

    Dave Lukkari, "He was one of a kind".
    Yes he was, one of the coolest guys I met after getting back into the scene in the early '90s...
    The Ardun equipped mill in his Crosley, was the same one he ran later in his rod.

    Thought I would jump in, we are just finishing this little guy at the shop, has early 12 in. Halibrands and early sw gauges, header and a weber carb should be a blast to take to Hallet road course and have some fun! Maybe to Goodguys and do the autocross.:)

    Enjoy, Jason HRG

    That's a cool mod- love the rounded front wheelwells and lowered windshield. Interesting solution to the blockiness of the stock Super Sports door tops... I may do something similar with mine.
