    WOW! This is a very nice MERCURY bodied T Speedster with a Fronty overhead, it may be the Vic Sala car, one of the earliest ones to be restored. Bob [​IMG]

    Thanks for posting these, my dad used to race on the dirt circle tracks in Hawaii in 53 and 54. He was stationed there after Korea and I was born there in Nov. of 54. Makes me think of the fun he must have had back then....wish he was still alive to share this with me.

    I hit the newb thread a couple of years ago when I first joined, just haven't posted anything since.

    The engine has Weiand heads, I can't read the intake but I think its the same.
    The word FRANCES is on the side with an interesting cross sort of thing.

    The interior shot of a different car is clean but I cannot quite figure out what is in front of the steering wheel. Any guesses?

    This Plymouth looks like it was fairly new when it was crashed.
    This Caddy is a mess - the reg tag is dated 1949.
    Dad used to freelance shoot and develop for insurance companies.
    I suspect that some of his images that were gruesome were destroyed. I do recall him mentioning a lady impaled by the steering column in a 30's Chevy. I hope that was destroyed.

    It appears to be a chrome column support, if you blow the pic up there seems to be a reflection of the photographer near the dash.
