York US30 Reunion
Click the photo it gets huge so you can see it better
A BUNCH of JR stock notables
2014, Geoff Stunkard photo.
Do you know if he took them all there I have a few more with no photographer info attached.
Marv Ripes vs. Tritak/Morgan wagon
He and I both took a ton of photos in that setup. I looked at mine and confirmed that wasn't my photo. How they got on the net un-watermarked is a mystery, but I bet it all goes back to Darwin. Although now that I think more about it there was another guy who may have climbed up on the platform briefly, and not being a regular photographer he may well have circulated his photos for all the Jr Stk guys.
Another from York US30 reunion
We all miss the York gatherings, they were the best!
That's one of Geoff's photos. He loved hauling that ladder all throughout the halls.
He takes some GREAT shots. That first large one with everybody is KILLER.
Do you who is with the red 55 on the right in that large group photo I don't recognize him right off?
Nine of those are original Juniors. Two are still as last raced in 71 although the Gunnings did freshen up the Jenkin’s motor in their 4 door.
That's Bill Johnston.
Last one I have from the York US30 reunion
Marv Ripes. He won NHRA national events with both cars. He will be 86 in September.
After the show was over I got a few more pics of Marv and the cars.
Man for JR Stock fans that was the place to be sorry I wasn't there.
I'll be darned-He built a damn good torque converter too!!!
And from the last show at the York Fairgrounds, 2015.
I really miss that get together although almost all of those guys show up at the Tri 5 Nats.
I remember this car at P.I.D....
found this on Colsey's place today. https://www.facebook.com/colesysplace/photos/a.1586646924936118/2869323040001827/?type=3&theater
" A 1965 photo of Ross Ramsay's 273 cu in Valiant sponsored by Ken Scott Motors in Port Credit Ontario. This is the dealership where local Mopar racers Gord Coates and Don Cloake both worked. It later became Peel Chrysler Plymouth. In this photo Ross is holding his trophy for a D/SA class win at St. Thomas. The car was named "The White Tornado".
I thought through the years that They didn't do that well in class racing because of a poor HP/weight ratio.
Around this time in D/S my 1967 Mustang 390 was also in D/S vs their 273.
In fall of 1973 I ordered a cast iron powerglide and 8" converter from Marv for my 1957 Chev
Super Stock car. I remember it was $ 199 for the trans and $ 399 for the converter.
I believe that's Russ Matthews' Buick convertible. Not sure about the Comet. the sign on the fence appears to say "Springnat..."
Barkley/Ripes v. Willard Wright at Riverside Raceway, probably the Hot Rod Magazine meet during the late 60s.
This drag strip ran south-to-north (counter to the direction of the sporty cars) on the back straight-away of that well-known road racing venue. It was located in the northwest quadrant of what is now the community of Moreno Valley.
