Eddie, just don't me what I had for LUNCH today....
That the same car as was shown in post 9747, then owned by Ray Golonka...
There is hope - do a search on here for HotRod28AR and also check out his profile album. His name is Dean and he has restored the old Patrick Brothers IN-BOMBER H/S 57 Chevy. This young fella is like 21 years old and to say that he is committed and respectful to Junior Stock, vintage racecars and 50's/60's lifestyle would be an understatement. He might not be the norm for his age group but I have a feeling he has influenced many others.
As far as the music being gone .....THAT'LL BE THE DAY
A little better quality than before. Maybe Pete can make it bigger. 1968 Tulsa.
Check out the "hole" in the grille for changing out the camshaft (I'm just guessing that's what it's for). Butch/56sedandelivery.
Nope. Just to let more air in. LOL
The hole in the grille might cause you to be digging around in a junyard if you were flunked for it! We had missing chrome when we showed up for our first WCS race and were subsequently in a local junk yard getting the necessary pieces to satisfy Greg X. We were missing some substantial stuff though and the holes for our headers thru the fenders were to big......2 fingers worth of room all the way around was what we were held to....
Here ya go...
You guessed it!
Here's the little I know...a 1958 Corvette, 283 cu.in 250 h.p. Looks like it's at Atco, anyone know who it might be?
Looks like it sez Bill Cornelius on the door.
Cristina -- I raced against John at Dragway 42 back in 64-65. Lets see some more pix and stories of his "fuelie" 57 D/S
july 2010 ad. Says the SD is a 4 dr wagon converted to a Sedan Delivery. This guy sure has a lot of project cars for sale!!
I came across this two-part article, on-line, today and I thought I would share 'em. It's the story of a "certain" '67 Camaro...Hot Rod Magazine's Project Car that, for a few brief shining moments, was run as a Junior Stocker, in one of its many iterations, by my ol' "freelancing days" acquaintance/pal/SEMA buddy Jim McFarland. You'll recall this car was "famous" for more than a few "exhibitions" and "displays", not the least of which was as a "cover car" with a billowing Simpson 'chute...a now-iconic shot taken at Bakersfield in '67, and described in the story.
Anyway, Part 2 includes the names of several folks previously mentioned in this thread...and at least ONE "regular contributor", here...Mr. Gary Glover, as a member of the "Valley Boys"!
I hope you enjoy this read as much as I did...

Jim was obviously in a very good mood when he was "recollecting" this...as well he should have been. Great story, and very well written!
Car # 809 driver is John James.He was a parts man at Bryner Chevy in Jenkintown Pa.Pic is Maple Grove
Thanks for the info.
Early photo of Tokyo Rose?
Pete i belive your correct on the early rose photo as i remember seeing one i BELIVE running in tulsa? it looked just like that.
I got to tell you all,if it wasn't for a lot of you guys and your photos(bob rice album especially) and a scant memory of my own of the paper on the window,with a small magazine photo in the corner(altho i DID NOT remember the name of the car) and it said it had racing history.I would of never figured out exactly what she was!
Your all a great bunch of guys no doubt,and i think it would of been a BLAST hanging out at the races with you!
BTW does anybody have a nice photo THE RIGHT SIZE of rose.tried to use one for an avatar but keeps sayin it's to big?
and no pokin fun at the blonde!
Some more of Thumper................
That first picture is from Tulsa.
picture number 2, with the CASTROL middle divider...what track and year?...was CASTROL around back in the 60's...also the track stands look larger that the old tracks...
It looks like Dragway Park in Cayuga Ontario.
Andy Kish's car looks like it has one of those stiff hood spring bends in it, or maybe a way to get some air in there...I'll stick with the hood springs.
this is one of the best posts to date....we were all so lucky to enjoy the youth of drag racing...we took it so serious..did we even think, where would we be in 40 years...doubt it!
Maybe somebody knows who the tech guy is...also, what is that hanging under the right quarter panel? I'm a member of the over the belt gang but ...
Thanks buck!! What a clean little Olds! Sure would be a nice car to have today!!! eh??
