How do you open the ones that have 'X IMG'? I right clicked, did show picture, with no results.
Frank Maratta eventually cut that car up. Story goes the lead used in the build was melted and sold for scrap all 40 pounds or so of it!
40 lbs??.... I would have thought closer to 400 lbs !!
Thanks for the post.
I remember going to the show when it was in Hartford CT in the early 60s. One time it was in a big snow storm and a few of us went together in fellow car club member Ray B. corvair, all traffic was stopped but the rear engine corvair plowed on, well on a few hills we had to give it a push. Those were the days...
Somehow HAMB last all the url's I guess... As the photos are still there or Facebook changed it. Here is the link to them all: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.676796839029319.1073741857.111745702201105&type=3
In the "Cool Cars/ Square Roll Bars" book they said when the "Mystery" car was dismantled, Frank filled a 55 gallon drum with lead ( which he scrapped for $11.80 ) A bit more than 40# I think!!
