    Steve Stapp in his Vanguard Auto Air Conditioning Special Sprint car. Stapp sure built beautiful cars and this one is right up there in beauty.

    Carl Williams in one of Stapp's cars being pushed off in the streets of Los Angeles around midnight. That is Steve in his Cadillac pushing Carl. This brings back memories of all the places I got pushed off on streets and parking lots to check something on the car.

    Many of the racing photos/info I post are from the Bobby Marshall collection, an excellent Sprint car driver in his time frame. Thank You ! Bobby

    Sorry, you are right. Totally forgot about the older series. I picked up the 1949 series last time my daughter dragged me to Comicon in Novi Mich. last year. Not exactly an Oscar worth performance.
