Holy shit dog !! The sequence of photos shows the car gettin out shape and rolling,then back on the starting line with the rash of the first wreck evident,racing again and getting outta shape for the second time and what looks like the makings of another roll job !! That's real racing !!! >>>>.
Hi Ron...I believe I took a photo of the same Henry-J at Island in '61 or '62.
Holy cow, that's insane... Looks like he is actually laughing in that one shot.
Come on 2 million

Yep,I have the full sequence of photos.I think I've posted them on the HAMB about 2 years ago.
2,000,000 views.......unbelievable. Thanks again Dragnuts.
C'mon Royal, post some more gems. Our new goal is 5,000,000!

I think your assesment is on the mark. Perhaps there was too many flopper circuits crammed into too small a region. Who knows. But I am to the task of making a chronicling of the various barnstorming circuits. Let me know whats involved.
best thread ever on the 'net

Good Gosh! That is just too wild.
Hosting- 8th annual Nostalgic Show & Go! March 27-28 Phoenix/
Make plans to attend.
Looks pretty idiotic to me!!! Destroying a '64 Race Hemi car. I know the shots were from "back in the day" buy c'mon, what were they thinkin.....
They were thinkin, "This is fun, let's do it again".
Amazing that an acid dipped, aluminum nosed '64 Mopar with a home made roll bar can roll over like that and still make another pass. Try that with any modern POS with all the mandated scientific safety goodies and you'll likely need the coroner to make next pass for ya'!
Probably 'Hold my beer, and watch this!'
nothing broke, let's go again
They were thinking, "Who gives a shit, we're having a good time!" And, "HAHAHA! Let's run it again!"
They were not thinking it was a 64 hemi race car. Back then it was just another car.
Hawkins, Webster, & McLeod...now sort of restored...so what's with the "Speed Parts by Ma Zard"? "Ma Zard" was Jim Busby's mother, and as long as son-in-law Mike Bartlett drove the car, Ma Zard paid for the parts...good deal all around.
Now thats a cool tidbit of info. Jim Busby was later to become an accomplished road racer too having competed in Europe and later for BMW on the IMSA circuit
that grill plate, which had two young toddlers looking into their diapers with the caption: "the difference is delicious!" hung in les hawkins' garage for many years. wonder if it made it to the restored car of if "it" was recreated?
