    Hello,

    My brother and I met Jack Ewell at Mickey Thompson’s Shop that was located near our Westside of Long Beach house. We used to go over there to get our supply of hot rod/drag race information and ideas. Also, we would time it so we were the first ones to get the local supply of Drag News papers that were delivered weekly. Like all old speed shops, the conversations kept us informed and added to our knowledge base . It did not hurt that we also bought some items that were available to us. That kept the shop happy. We even drove the 1940 671 SBC Willys Coupe over there to show them what we just finished. They were impressed !

    The modified 1934 Ford coupe was in the Fuel Altered Class. (before the open roadster versions of the Altered) Those fuel coupes were close to everyone’s minds and hearts as they actually looked like what was driven by most any young person on the streets daily. Except for the altered motor location, straight header pipes and of course the fuel smell. It was an early build from Jack Ewell and Bill Stecker out of San Pedro, CA. They went on to run a series of Top Fuel cars in partnership with James Kambor in later years.

    In So Cal, there were a number of these fuel coupes and sedans racing together and against each other. It was a weekly show of force and power. Here is a sample from other posts about the gathering of the Fuel Coupes in So Cal.

    Jack Ewell was the parts manager at Mickey Thompson's. After our 1940 Willys 671 SBC coupe accident, during the recovery period and absence from Lion’s Dragstrip, we got a call from Jack Ewell. He was making an offer to put in one of the 671 supercharged Pontiac motors in our 58 Impala. it was due to the fact that we already had a C&O Stick Hydro in place, but also, the guys at Mickey Thompson’s Shop knew of our Impala as we drove over there regularly.

    It was his way to get us back into the fold of street power and drag racing. It was very tempting, but we needed the 58 Impala for my brother’s recovery visits to the doctor and rehabilitation program. So, it had to be a reliable daily driver, not a highly modified Impala that was close to being a heavy Gas Coupe/Sedan competitor. That was a nice gesture and we thanked him for it, but my brother had to decline the offer.

    In the early history of So Cal drags, Jack Ewell was heavily involved in all aspects of drag racing.

    "Another really cloudy picture, this was a very minimal car, but Jack Ewell could build engines, note what this turned in '55 with 240".... Jack later ran a series of fuel dragsters, including the famous Fuller "Chubasco" that has been well restored. Jack also worked the parts counter at Mickey Thompsons, and when I would come in for a parts pickup Jack would give me his old Ardun spark plugs... " @296ardun

    Hey 41,

    Actually, my brother and I only went to the Bakersfield Smokers event when it was called the Bakersfield Smokers March Meet held every March. March 1960 was the first and last event we were able to go and enjoy the wonderful drag racing in those early years. By the time it was called the CHRR, we were long gone and did not attend those events.

    Well it ain't a drawing, but still art. Check this dude out, does 50s style tunes, this one is 50s hot rod theme, dudes ol lady gets stolen by a guy with a caddy. My favorite lines are:

    Now I confess you're a handsome devil
    And you're driven by a rockin rebel
    And you're riding on a different level
    In the finest way a man can travel

    LOL, cool line about Cadillacs....
