    Before going back to vintage photos, here is Bill Collins roadster taken in 1992. It was an early Dallas roadster from 1951. 1992BillsT800.jpg

    It's great to see these vintage photos and it's good that someone labeled them so that we have more than just a picture and thanks for filling in the blanks for us. It's also great to see things come full circle with the new generation of builders.

    Elrod - That is great artwork. I've never seen anything done that nicely. The date is for the first ever drag races at Caddo Mills. Do you know anything about Henry Shiels? He must have been in the Chaparrals or done the artwork for them??
