    These two club cars were from the same town, Redondo Beach, with the Drifters white coupe running a blown flathead and the Millwinders car ran Jack Ewell's fuel Ardun. From Hot Rod.

    Bob Armstrong's fuel coupe ---yes, it is a full custom, and yes it ran in the fuel coupe ranks...Bob would go on to fuel dragsters with the Armstrong & Richter "Nesbitt Orange Special." Photo from the American Hot Rod Foundation.

    I think that is Pat Akins near side, at Riverside...not sure who the other car is.

    Tommyd any info on this Anglia that has a class designation A/G G S. It looks like the "Cali Bros."
    but it's not. It is Dover though. I wonder what year? Maybe 67/68 there is no marker light on that fender on the right side of the photo.
