My grandpa on the left when he was a blacksmith in Luxemburg Iowa. And he owned the tavern next to it. Around 38’ or 39’. I have one of the hay wagons he built out of 28’ or 29’ Chevy axles. He numbered it #36 so we know he made that many at least. He gave ours to his brother in law for a wedding present and my great uncle gave it back to us before he died I Have and use all his blacksmith hammers and tongs and have his old Marquette stick welder and welding table that I still use for that heavy rusty shit. I have a couple of his big sharpening stones that I made into industrial looking coffee tables. Can’t imagine swinging them heavy assed hammers all day. I still have the hamms bar glasses a stool and the hanging hamms rotating beer clock that still rotates

When flying was FUN.
This picture reminds me of a similar photo in a book I have about the Titanic. It was taken not long after the sinking of about 1500 people in the photo to give you the visual of the shear magnitude of the loss of that many people. And it sure does.
What the heck? Inline 3-cyl flatheads? What are they?
No idea and it looks like turbochargers.
This guy was not having a good day. He was supposed to land on the front straight away on the opening of a big Dirt race in I believe I shot this in Dewey Ok. He MISSED and landed in the pond just over turn one.
Is there any information on the first attached shot, Rootie? I'm not even sure of the track.
And the other photo looks to be Joe Leonard in the Konstant Hot car at DuQuoin in 1964. Leonard was an all round driver (and rider) who could race anything.
I think its Mancillias Brothers,,they ran 3 and 4 cylinder engines.
