    What's up with this GMC? What's on the bumper? Would like to see a close up.

    Nearly sixty years ago, in 1954, this photograph drew national attention. Ed Wolf’s coupe got to flipping along the front stretch wall and catch fence at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City. It must have been pretty impressive for him – and for some of the nearby spectators. Thanks to his lap belt, he was not seriously injured. But it sure was a good thing he did not have to rely on the integrity of his roll cage, interior sheet metal or side bars. Photo from SPEED AGE magazine, August 1954.

    taken from the Coastal 181 site. This car appears to be heavily gutted for the day, no floorboards visible, very unusual for the day.

  8. Elfreida Macs, known as “World’s Champion Woman Driver,” was ridin’ high in the summer of 1934. Just married, she was a big-time attraction. It all ended at the Alabama State Fair on September 26. She died ramming a car through a board wall of flames. From Racers at Rest, by Buzz Rose. (Photo from Show Biz Auto Racing)

  9. Craig Breedlove perches on a crate in the wooden mockup of the “Spirit of America”. When completed, the jet-powered three-wheeler was taken from Craig’s father’s garage to Bonneville, where it broke the World Land Speed Record in 1963.

  10. Wally “Crazy Wheels” Campbell was on the fast track to greatness before his death at Salem in 1954. He ran the NASCAR Speedway Division in 1952, ending up second in points. He is shown here with a Ford flathead. He subsequently switched to Nash. Do you think he was having heating problems?

  11. American Indian Dave McInnes had one cool T-bucket in Florida modified racing in 1960. He was big on square tubing. From FLORIDA MOTORSPORTS RETROSPECTIVE, Vol. 2, by Eddie Roche (Dick Joslin Family Collection)

  12. Bob Osiecki’s Dodge, piloted by dragster Art Malone, went around Daytona International at 181.561 mph in 1965, winning him $10,000 for a new closed-course speed record. He knew the car would really be flying. It had wings and a rudder. Remarkably, that same year, LeeRoy Yarbrough muscled a largely stock-bodied Dodge Coronet around the Tri-Oval at 181.818.

  13. It looks like this old-time ice racer was a “cut-off” rather than a “cut-down.” In any case, it sure looked cold. (R.A. Silvia Collection)
