    The '64 Comet had all it's maintenance records catalogued- that one I know is verified. It's really not that unbelievable.
    The so-called 'planned obsolescence' was stylistic, not engineering-based. Car bodies were changed every 2 years on average, not the 7 or so like today. Plus, such enormous strides were made advancing cars thru the '50s, when the decade began a Merc had 110 HP and 8 years later you could get 400. New & better amenities, automatics, power steering, and the huge styling forward push reeled customers in. Gas was cheap, pricing stayed affordable, it was hard to argue against trading in.

    Now a-days a 2019 car looks pretty much like a 2005.
    The problem was after this era- the '70s & 80s, when cars in general took a hard downturn in longevity.

    Looks like a "Hot Pad" scramble to get the crews to the planes and off the ground ASAP. note the cars doors are still open, they jump out and run to the plane and the driver closes the door just to shave some minuscule amount of time.

    Can't help thinking the front fenders were not that badly damaged before they picked it up. Poor lil' Renault.

    The first photo shows some great detail on the 1926 Eldridge Special driven by Douglas Hawkes at Indianapolis.

    The other photo shows Troy Ruttman alongside the car of Walt Faulkner in 1950. It's hard to tell but this might be at Syracuse, New York.

    Thanks Rootie!

    I think this is the 1949 Sacramento race

    Troy Ruttman and Fred Agabashian on the pole

    It was the only champ race that Fred won

    Thanks. I was kind of guessing and a photo of the front row makes perfect sense.

    Thx Bleach,
    Spent about an hour of my life researching the history of the Trinity Hotel & Auditorium. Outstanding piece of architecture amazingly only 12 miles from my house......
