    I believe that this car belonged to Bruce Morgan who won the NHRA World Championship in about 1961. I saw this car run in Southern California during that time frame.

    I was actually commenting on a pix of a 52 Hudson and a 52 Oldsmobile waaay back in the thread. It was identified as a 51 Hudson and since I am a Hudson nazi I had to make an edit. Probably bad form ... sorry.

    I met Dave Kempton in 1962 when he was the resident tech guru at San Gabriel Raceway. He first caught my attention by being able to inspect and tech stock, super stock, and FX cars while balancing a bottle of liquid white shoe polish and a lettering brush in the other hand. In those days before the advent of roller tip shoe polish for putting numbers on the windows, Dave would casually free-hand entry numbers on the glass with a brush with the talent that seemed at least equal to that of Da Vinci or Michelangelo. At that time he was completing the preparation of a '62 Sport Fury that he ran in C/SA with a 361 cubic inch combination in NHRA events. That car and its successors eventually took him to Stock Eliminator wins at both the Winternationals and the U.S. Nationals a feat that was not duplicated for several years.

    Dave was an extremely knowledgeable Stock racer but also a truly "nice guy." He used the name "Shaker" on all of his MoPar entries and eventually expanded his stable to include the use of the 343 horsepower, 383" motors and a couple of station wagons such as the one labelled "Shaker Maker." At one point, his son Mark Kempton drove one of the wagons. Dave also drove a factory-supplied '68 AMX in Super Stock for a time before switching to a Max Wedge '64 Plymouth in SS/EA.

    The sport lost Dave Kempton in the mid-70s and I lost a good friend when he passed from cancer some years ago. He had a strong influence on Stock Eliminator and the entire stocker scene in Southern California. 447.JPG 449.JPG 451-1.jpg Dave Kempton SS EA Irwindale 1974.jpg
