...and we’re downhill.
EMD 567 on board for power. With twice as many cylinders as the one in my profile pic.

Now the city housing inspectors would go nuts making everyone paint their houses if they still looked like this.

If the photo was taken today, everyone would be looking down at their iPhones, instead of at each other...
I'm not sure who is driving in the first shot but the car is the Don Peabody sprinter. Looks like El Centro.
The next shot is a good one of the Rounds Rocket at Indianapolis on what looks to be a qualifying day judging by the crowd in the background. In retrospect is seems like this car might have had the potential to be competitive if it had been developed further. Rookie Bill Vukovich actually practiced in this car in 1950.
And the last shot shows drag racer Art Malone's Novi at Indianapolis in 1964. He was still running at the end of the race. Malone was one of those guys who could drive just about anything.
I believe that's Colby Scoggins in the Peabody car.
