    Peters & Frank Top Gas dragster, sponsored by Quincy Automotive. Was it already known as the Freight Train then?

    At least it wasn't one of those hitches from U-Haul that bolted to the bumper.

    You went shopping at Scotty's Muffler Service.

    If you didn't notice, it doesn't have a bumper. What is wrong with having a hitch? This custom likely has a matching trailer or a boat.

    Any back story on the 56 Champ Roadster?

    Maybe a dumb question but did they leave those small wheels and tires on the trailer or was it just for moving it around. Kind of looks like they are ready to roll after not such a great day.

    Milwaukee June 64, Jim Hurtubise ran into AJ Foyt and hit the wall. He had a extra fuel tank in the nose of the car and it caught on fire and he was badly burned. The trailer is what they called a Dolly Wheel trailer.

    Rootie thanks so much for the history lesson, wondered if it was the Hurtubise car. Nasty business with fire involved.
