    This is such a great thread. The Jr. Stock thread is killer too. Some of these color photos are so vivid you get the sense they were taken recently. Very cool

    Watched the King & Marshall car run many times over the years and they always were a top performer at every event.

    Still trying to figure this one out. Evidently it is not Bob Noice who drove his own Accessories Unlimited junior fueller and later shoed Jim Brissette's Hand Grenade T/F. Don Ewald also had trouble I.D.'ing the driver.

    Newly discovered photo of Steve Pick and Joe Koenig of Long Beach showing the power of their DeSoto powered FED.


    Hello,

    When I was looking at some old Drag News Paper articles, I came across this photo that I had never seen before. It shows a full on power run from the Lions Dragstrip starting line. The Spectator side film came from the 1959 files. The close up “in your face” film portion came from the “secret white Pontiac Ambulance” location on the Tower side. That portion came from the early, 1960 “all over Lions” filming project from back in those days.

    How was this yellow FED different than the others running at lions during those days? The Pick-Koenig FED has two things that made it unique: a very large centrifugal supercharger mounted in front of the DeSoto motor and a hydraulic front suspension (see it in slow motion action) that sent all of the power back to the rear…that was the purpose of the geometry.

    " Does ''The Underdog'' on the cowl help?"
    [​IMG]
    I dug a bit deeper on the Underdog deal (after finding numerous cars/drivers that have used the name) and finally did find a listing for what appears to be "that" Bob Noice (Van Nuys, CA). Interesting that Ewald could not place him as owning/driving this car.
