    Gyronaut, thanx for the ashtray story. Alex told it to me about 30 years ago when I was helping him on a project and I had forgotten most of it. Wayno

    i think some of the "upper eschelon" didn't approve of the so-cal push truck being on the Pebble show field, but it was there

    Never seen this shot before, thanks for posting...I think that the roadster actually belonged to the Reed Brothers, ran either Chrisman's or Harry Duncan's engines, and Art drove...I think that the picture is from 1955.
     
  10. Cub8556....here's my uncles friend Roy's (and later my uncle's car) 1937 Chevy - Roy won the 1950 Sacramento Autorama with it - towing my uncles roadster to Bonnieville in 1950.

    i found this in another thread here on the hamb (History Vintage Drag Racers with their Cars). not only was it in the wrong category, it was mislabeled as being mickey thompson.

    Tim will love knowing that he was mistaken for Thompson...... 'course the nose is kinda..............
     
  21. Does Seth have any of the pieces of that car from after the wreck? There was so much history in that ride.

    He has everything, which is really nothing. It would be a reconstruction not a restoration.

    He did run the tires from the lakester on his modified roadster the next year after the crash. Tough suckers......... both the tires & Seth. :cool:
