    Walt Arfons built, and Bobby Tatroe driven "Wingfoot Express" LSR rocket car getting a little maintenance in the unused hanger at Wendover AF Base. Ultimately, it was powered by about a dozen JATO bottles. This machine looked okay on paper, but did not perform well on the saltflats. The bottles did not stay lit long enough to make much of a dent in the Land Speed Record...

    Seems odd to see the Holman-Moody Competition Proven logo on that Plymouth Valiant front fender. I always associated H-M with Ford.

  27. Looks like a "company town" built to house their workers. Makes me think of Ernie Ford's "I owe my soul to the company store" song. There were similar situations on Maui for the sugar cane workers. I have an oversized lubester that was used on Maui to pump kerosene into 1 gallon bottles. They would sell it to workers to heat stoves n lanterns. Workers would identify themselves with small brass tokens with their number on it.

    They look pretty deluxe, with fireplaces and all.
    My mother grew up in sugar cane picker shacks on the big island of Hawaii. All the kids in the pickers' families would chew on the sweet sugar cane stalks, all nearly toothless by their teen years.

  30. Hi 55Bird. It is really hard to believe that the sugar cane fields in all of Hawaii are gone. Labor just got too expensive.
    I don't suppose you have your relations Bango, which is the number tag the workers were each issued. Varied spelling of foreign names made it more efficient to assign a number to each worker. Bango is Japanese for number. Worker was called by that number, expenses for company store purchases and paid by showing that number tag - the Bango.
    Bet you remember bentos with a smile! Bento is basically lunch for you non-Hawaiians.
