    Looking for any info or photos of this midget. This car was owned by Sammy Packard and was raced in the New England area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Looks like it could be a Solar.

    Do I not remember his cars being well turned out? Perhaps this was well past his ownership, if at all.

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. A friend of mine has Ken Hickey's first Kurtis Kraft midget (chassis 135) which was a Ford V8-60. He wants to restore the car properly, but doesn't know which number and color the car was. All pics of Hickey's Kurtis Krafts are of the Offys. Any help or pics would be great.
    Thanks,
    Keith Radt

    My father raced midgets in the Buffalo/Western New York/Niagara Frontier from 1949-1952. He was involved in midget auto racing in that area from 1946-1952. Any pics form that area during that time would be great. He drove for Vince and Ray Furschback(spelling?) , George Owens, and Ted Kessler among others. His primary cars were a cream and red #47 homebuilt V8-60, a white and blue #16 homebuilt rail V8-60, and a blue #52 homebuilt V8-60. I have a pic of my uncle driving the #47 at Buffalo Civic Stadium, and my Dad getting pushed off in the #52. I would like to find a pic of the #16 for him. He is in the book "Daredevils of the Frontier" by Keith Herbst.
    Any pics or information regarding these cars, race programs, or any information would be appreciated. He has given me a tremendous love of the sport from this time period.
    Thanks,
    Keith Radt
