    It's not in motion anymore. I'll bet that got his attention. Hope nobody was hurt.

  7. This did not happen very often. Not sure who is in the near lane, but he's out on Sirokin, and that is a rare happening.

    Starting from the top the Fiat is Lonnie Butts’ Twitch a wee in the tech line at Pomona. Not sure in the flathead powered roadster but the next three are Gabby Bleeker’s Bantam, followed by Carl Heichel’s altered and then Eddie Hill and finally the Cook and Bedwell rail

    The original Pure Hell pictured 56 years ago before it had that name, it was run by Guasco, Cerruti & Gray. Shortly after these photos were taken it was painted and given the name.
    The A/HR class designation was Hot Roadster for altered roadsters running fuel. Coupes ran in the Fuel Coupe class and were required to run fenders. It was later that coupes and roadsters ran together in the Fuel Altered class.

    The first photo is Gabby’s F/A after the car was chopped and refined a bit, seen here still running a big inch Olds.
    Last photo is the original car running on gas, classed as an A/Altered coming off the line at Union Grove, WI. I see hairpin radius rods on the front but I’m not sure they are on the updated car, maybe that was a new muffler-moly chassis when Gabby went to nitro?

    Famous chassis builder Woody Gilmore has died. This is an early effort when Woody lived in Concord. Both he and Paul Sutherland moved to Southern California later, where Woody founded Race Car Engineering, where Paul also worked. The caption is not exactly right, as Roger Lee pointed out...the car is Paul's, not Woody's. RIP, Woody (photo taken at Vaca Valley, 1958) Gilmore.jpg

  24. Sad to hear of such a contributor to the hobby. The roadster in the back ground - is that a B/H destination on the door ? Is that for "blown hot roadster class ?

    B is the engine size compared to the weight. A being a big engine in a light car. H is Hot Roadster which means it's a fuel car.

    Sad news Dave, Woody was one of the best. Too bad his career was cut short, due to a litigious society. Great picture, with Hank Vincent's Top Banana, just behind.

  28. Woody certainly thought outside the box and was always willing to experiment...

    Here's Kenny Bernstein early in his career driving one of Woody's creations...
