  1. Jack Lufkin's Kurtis "sports car". When it went airborne at 300, driver Jerry Spotts learned they should have listened when Frank said not to run it over 250.

    Hi all, This is a long shot, to try and get some photos of a car I designed many years ago. A picture resides on this site under memareobilia and posted by Grenade Inspector in October 2010, I hope he's still around with a job like that. Anyway, If either the "Inspector" or someone who knows him can point me in the direction of some images of the Blonde Bombshell 2, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks in advance.
