    Hi Stogy

    Is this the same car as the "Holey" picture above with different rear Pie Crusts?
    That's a sweet Tire / Wheel Combo...!
    Do you / Someone know the tire sizes ...?...Look like 16 & 19's?

    Aloha

    Just a mention that this was Down Under Thunder and this very serious contender was David Milne and what a trendsetter look at the wild details including the tiny headlights and wild pipes...

    340Hilborn...Yes it is...I didn't think so but it is...Speed, Looks & Purpose all on the same level...

    It actually still exists today...

    Quoted..."The car started life as a 1926 model Type 37 four-cylinder Grand Prix Bugatti car which raced on New South Wales speedways and in several Phillip Island Australian Grands Prix before being fitted with a Hudson straight-eight engine- and later a 283 CID Chev V8 after Earl blew the Hudson motor at this very event in 1957."

    Now Tire size...Hmmmm...7.60 x 15

    Remember Tommy Lee at the Dry Lakes had a Bugatti. But this ones in Australia and the Holes I suspect were applied by the Racer...Pretty impressive run and a serious bunch of commitment to unusual motive power and he really was quite the contender.

    are you sure? motor looks like it has a valve cover and the plug wires look to be coming from the driver side. maybe a dodge?

    Body and Grille Shell...You are probably right, the whole chassis including engine may be as you say Dodge...I guess Jalopy is pretty fitting in this case...

    "Class B Roadster of SDRC member John Cramer"

    Another with some mixed mods going on...what is it a cabriolet perhaps Non Ford body looks a bit different...Taillights on Deuce in front are quite inboard as well

    Quoted...

    Hot rods first appeared in southern California in the late 1930s and became popular in many other places after World War II. Oval track racing combined speed and spectator enjoyment. Dick Fraizer, Floyd Johnson, and Hack Winniger built this competition track roadster in Muncie, Indiana. It has a 1927 Ford Model T body, a 1928 Chevrolet chassis, and a Ford V-8 engine. Fraizer set a one-lap speed record of 84.23 miles per hour with this car at the Winchester Speedway in Indiana. It also ran at Soldiers Field in Chicago with Andy Granatelli’s Hurricane Racing Association and on tracks as far east as Virginia.]

    Just from my limited experience with jumping stuff I had a lot better success when the back wheel/wheels touched down first. Standing and leaning forward is not a good plan either. I'd like to see the next shot, maybe not.
