Dynamite Ollie Silva in the 0? Way cool 3 window and he has his shades on. I was lucky enough to see him race several times before he got hurt. Love that short track history!!!
wooden cars and iron men in those days
I took my kids (6and9) to the round Lee raceway a few weeks ago. They loved it after they put down the damn Iphones and watched the races.
check out the 55 taillights
Great pictures Dick..........have not seen some of those cars .........got more?
Dick has loaned me his scrapbook and yes I will post more from it as long as there is interest.
wow....really cool stuff...thank him for letting you post....and ask about that nailhead Buick running in one ofthe cars....
Olie looking cool again !
Great bunch of pictures. keep them coming.
What a great collection, thanks for posting.
Bentley Warren still holds a track record for local paved track here. Set in a Super Modified in the mid 70s I believe! Helluva wheel man!
Note that Leo Cluff, Dick McCarrbe, & Danny Peterson, from Maine were there also !!
Dick Mills, a legend this fellow. His 3/4 scale 40 convertible, same homebuilt molds were then used, to build a 4-whl 'winter' version it seems, w/a plow!
He has striped, and applied art-work to more cars over the years.
An artist-gentleman, though I'd probably not want to line-up and race against him.
Here is a shot of the 3/4 conv.... the other 3/4 is a woody wagon
here is another of Bentley
Great stuff, thanks for posting. It is American racing history, but sad to see so many Ford Coupes lost. Bob
