    I was at Indy in the late 60s when Waibel's 57 broke an axle leaving the line. He was the man to beat at Miami/Hollywood when he showed up for the points meets back in the late 60s also

    Many of these Junior Stock cars looked similar but the ones that won every weekend at the drag strip were really very tricked up with some very creative engineering work and parts.

    How about giving up a few secrets, or things done that were't quite "legal" back then? You've got nothing to lose now. Thanks, I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    That's Lambeck
    BTW, when I was a kid I wrecked the front end on my 57 BelAir 2 door hardtop and replaced it with an original paint (Canyon Coral) front end just like that one.

    Edit
    It was brought to my attention that the color was Sierra Gold, these old eyes don't see color chips too well anymore.
    Just keep'n it real.

    Gary, that's a great shot!! Am I correct in remembering that as Bob's "first" '57? After a time, the Bel Air hardtop was replaced by a 150 Business Coupe?

    There are a few other details that i notice about that picture.
    1. Cragar wheels - those were the wheel of choice during the mid-to-late 60s because they were good-looking and because light-weight wheels were not legal on a Stocker. Eventually, at least on the west coast, a preferred wheel became the lightweight aluminum Fenton "dish mags." They weighed about half as much as a Cragar.

    2. The black license plate - The fact that it's on the car at all suggests that it was probably flat towed to the track. I remember getting a ticket for flat towing my '57 Corvette with an expired tag. Imagine the latter-day value of a '57 Bel Air fuelie with black plates!

    3. The background looks like OCIR.

    4. Goodyear cheater slicks had a relatively short run of popularity between the days of Casler recaps and Firestone Drag 500's.

    Would anybody have the nerve to call this a "Powder Puff" race these days? Kool photos. Anyone
    who would think women can't race, drag or otherwise, would be a fool. My mind goes back to
    Judy Lily, Paula Murphy, Shirley Shahan and Bunny Burkett. No, I didn't forget Ms. Muldowney.

    Chuck, I bought that car from Bob for $425.00.The black plates came with it . I drove it for about 10 yrs before loaning it to a friend who totaled it. That picture was taken at Indy.It came with a .020 over 283 and a powerglide.It was his first 57 and replaced with a 150 business coupe.

    Aha! A closer look can spot the corn fields across the road. Thanks for the clarification.

    Didn't that Hydrophobia car have one of those John Kilgore close ratio Hydros in it?

    If I'm remembering correctly it did but it didn't work out to well and it was converted to stick. Not 100 % sure.
