A couple of the Johnson Shipley that I didn't see Toby post
These are from Ol Deuce's collection
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
Thanks for pointing that story out Wayne! I just went and read it. WOW
heres some pics i took at pebble 2 years ago. they had a streamliner/salt flats class that year
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
Easy there guys, didn't mean to step on any toes
You DIDN'T, we would love to see a Bonneville tow rig thread. There is a push truck thread also if you search.
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.
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.
goodbye to another find thread.
I'll ask Art next week when I see him .
Betty Skelton readies to set the land speed record for women in Art Arfons Cyclops before her record run at Bonneville on September 27, 1965
Just when I think this one is dead, you come up with some more good pics Toby.
Awesome pics! Puts me right there! Man I can almost feel the salt beneath my feet!
Um, that's snow Klaus
Ive always loved this picture taken by photographer David Perry.
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.
it is, of course, tim rochlitzer; 1964
Tim will love knowing that he was mistaken for Thompson...... 'course the nose is kinda..............
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.
Haven't played in awhile...here's a couple more.
Chet Herbert and the Beast...
Probably a repost.....if it is, sorry.
that cammer sat in our garage for several years. could never interest lattin to run it in something.
^^^Always one of my favorite cars.
