    I don't believe his head is under the car or in the wheel well.

    I think he is the headless tire changer

    Either way, I love the fact that he drove his 409 Biscayne to the track, threw on a set of slicks and raced it, then drove it home! I'm sure he left the show polish on the window for bragging rights too.

    Love the trailer hitch on that 63 Biscayne also. Better hope his woman's foot does't slip off the brake pedal.

    Been there, done it, and still have the trophy. Prize money gets spent, women came and went, but the trophy lives on!

    I remember putting on the "Atlas Bucrons" on my friends 62 409 Impala but he ran S/S in 62/63. Cars with slicks ran SS/S. At least at Westhampton.

    I have been a lot happier since my wife left. Now what is mine is still mine.

    This is why I married the daughter of a mechanic and truck driver. Her first car was a stick and one of our first dates was changing the trailing arms on my off topic 60’s vette. This is why I tell the younger guys make sure you “choose wisely. “

    Just a guess by me but it looks like it could be Indy looking toward the strip near the finish line with the "cheap seats on the hillside" - other side of the track. ??? Circle track was beyond that hillside ??

    I knew Paul Baker, a Division 7 racer in the Junior Stock days when he was a good friend of Tom Neja and his car was at Jack Bayer's shop in South El Monte for a while. According to his Facebook page, the picture was taken at Indy in 1970. That car was eventually sold to Keith Berg who ran it in Super Stock in 1972 under the name "Ace in the Hole." I've been told that it is still around, somewhere in Division 3, all cleaned up and pretty to look at!
     
  26. 1984 was my Div 1 number also ;-)

    Been on the lookout for this car around town for a couple of weeks. Finally caught up with it. Obviously not a race car but there's something about that insignia that kicks my pulse rate a couple of notches nonetheless. I'm not enough of a historian to be able to decode the trim tag from memory but it's carrying the correct stamping on the block and has the twin AFB carburetors and original air cleaner.

    Love it Chuck. I almost bought one like it ( Black with a red interior, 409/409 HP with a 4 speed) in 1962 Brand new but I was not old enough to sign for it. My Dad said NO to the 409 and 4-speed. I guess he could read my mind. He made me buy a Red 327 250 HP Impala with a "3 on the tree" stick instead. After that then 3 years in the Army and a "South east Asian Vacation" in 1966 I bought several Corvettes and a 1968 Z-28 after I came back in one piece. The one I wished I had back was my 1967 427 435 HP Vette ! I had 13 Corvettes during my crazy days and a 2010 LS-3 Corvette Coupe still today I bought new. The 2020's look like crap to me so maybe I will buy another 1966 or 1967 next time around. I hate computers in cars and the trans is in the rear on my 2010. YUCK !

    Chuck that could be the car that took me to my first ever drag race in the summer of 62. It was a black 62 with red interior SS. It had a 4spd, dual quad, posi traction car. I've been hooked ever since. I wish I would have bought the car I wanted after my southeast Asia vacation, it was a non hamb friendly 70 Yenko Deuce. It was in the Robert Chevrolet show room with a price tag of $4300. I had 2 grand but didn't want to take out a loan (wish I did).

    I am not sure at this point, if anyone has piped in about this car. This 55 Chevy is a Canadian built (Oshawa, Ontario, Canada) 55 Chev 150 sedan. The Canadian built 150's all had the station wagon chrome on the rear quarters and had the 210 steering wheel with the chrome ring. Just a little bit fancier than the American 150 model. That is all I know about this picture. I myself would like to know more about this drag stocker. It is interesting to see a four door drag raced, it has been done of course but very rare. Cheers.
