    Mike McGreevy in the Terre Haute, Indiana based midget owned by the Kincaid brothers. They sold the car to a local painting contractor named Ed Lark. McGreevy and Lark were at a private test session with the car at the Terre Haute Action Track when Lark suffered a heart attack and died. Lark's widow continued racing the car and a few years later ended up marrying McGreevy.

    Rootie, I'm just guessing on the second attached shot but my guess is Freddie Agabashian in the Agajanian Kurtis in 1949. Since there is no name on the side of the car it might also be 1948 since that was (I think) the first year that AAA let outlaw Agajanian run his cars although I believe they were entered under Clay Smith's name. Could this be at Sacramento?

    Thanks!

  2. That is a B/FX car named the Teachers Pet. In 1965
    In 1965 Ford of Canada built 7 HiPo Falcons. They were 271hp 289 motors with 4 speed Top Loaders and 9 inch rear ends.
    The one in the picture was in the Maritime Provinces of Canada and raced successfully for quite a time.

    I saw that car run many times at Island Dragway in the early/mid sixties. It always ran well.
