    It is Don Blairs and you are right it went thru many stages of Lake readiness...

    Here's the thread that led me to these questions below...the second link is the comments on the first...

    OMG...that is devistating
    OMG...that is devastating news. The hobby is truly losing an icon. Not only do we lose a great guy, but we also lose such great memories, knowledge, expertise, and everything else Don had to offer and did so freely. I am so, so sorry to hear of his passing. He will be truly missed. Condolences to the Family. RIP Don.

    Yes, Don bought it from the Spaulding brothers, replaced their T body with this one, and his own blown flathead

    Really stoked to score these RTA tags in a antiques mall in LA. I'm trying to do some research on Sam Comstock. I found his name mentioned in this thread in a Hotrod Magazine report for the April 1950 El-Mirage meet. Would love to find out any more info on what club he was a member of and what car he ran. Seems he did pretty well

    I’m blown away by the quality of these photos. And you have so many; these really help connect me with that moment in racing history. Priceless.. thanks for taking the time to share them.

    Hello HotRodDean; first off nice score on the timing tags! Kind of amazing you come all the way over here to find them in a antique mall in L.A.!! Good for you and glad you saved them. Crazy where some of this stuff ends up. I have checked everything I have but do not show anything on Sam. I think the best bet is to check with our friend @Jimmy B . His memorabilia collection is quite extensive. Take Care
