Seeing the photos of Joe Williamson brings back some memories, We ran E Altered against Joe. At first he could be handled, then he got hard to handle, then impossible. Quite a competior. Our 23 blue body is still on a altered in the faimly. Body was bought in 1963. The fun days.
That's probably how old Williamsons body was. Trick ruby red & flame paint, but it had a broom stick glassed in under the cowl for reinforcement.
The chassis had been front halved and the rear redone several times through the years, but the cage and body were straight out of the 60's. But in it's final stage it looked new from the outside. I often wonder if Joe originally built it or could it have had even more history.
I told every one that car should be in Garlits museum, but it was raced once at a points meet at BG and later parted out and sold by the used car broker who obtained it from Joe.

This was probably right before these guys showed up in the H/MP scene and added even more mayhem to an already bitch of a class in the toughest eliminator ever in history.
You had to have been there to understand what these people did with in line motors typically found in laundry trucks, and did it to a whole eliminator division of classes dominated by magazine cover drivers with factory sponsored trick dyno room motors.
This was a day when ingenuity still reigned supreme over corporate contingencies and the sanctioning bodies attempts to market racing automobiles.
And Dammit........ I still miss it !!

Never ceases to amaze me of all the cool cars that existed back then. Anglia coupes, panels, alterds, rails. What engenuity and innovation. And they raced against the national record with no damn stutter boxes or what ever they use now to "retard" the cars perfromance.
