    Maggie, Thank you ever so much for the "Lacy Lady" photos. My mother in law was a rivet bucker
    at the old Boeing plant #2 during WW II. She was one of the little people who were able to get into
    the small spaces to buck rivets, Her spot was inside the B-17 vertical tail, she did this job from 1942
    till 1945 when Boeing closed the B-17 line in Seattle. She will be 92 this year and still is in good health
    and still walks nearly a mile every day.
    Any way I've missed your input here Maggie, glad to see your return.

    . ........................... Jack

    That's George Bignotti at the left rear tire. This was in 1954 (I believe) and was his first trip to Indianapolis. I think his old midget racing friend Freddie Agabashian brought him along when he got the ride. Agabashian finished 6th that year.

    A.J. Shepherd with the Travelon Trailer roadster before he passed his Rookie Test in 1961. This is the same car that Jim Hurtubise had nearly broken 150MPH with the previous year and that Ed Elisian had been killed in at Milwaukee. Shepherd only made the 500 once and was involved in the big Jack Turner crash on the main straight. Everyone was really lucky in that one.

    Yeah he did come to Indy in 54 the first time with the Merz team. The pic above is from 55 when it had a different paint job and Walt Faulkner was driving. 1-17-i.JPG 1-17-j.JPG

    This would make an interesting rod! From a 1936 NatGeo

  18. After seeing the race crash photos, how many of the drivers survive unscathed to continue racing, they look so exposed....
     
  19. The first Bob's Hamburgers opened in the summer of 1955 in Salem, Oregon.

    The above photo was the 1965 opening of the 6th Salem area Bob's Hamburgers. 55 years later, Bob's Secret Hamburger Sauce is being manufactured by Beaverton Foods and sold locally at Roth's Fresh Markets. Proceeds help support a scholarship fund at Chemeketa Community College that was established by a gift from Bob Corey.

    I first saw this car built by Mitch Michell at the Bellville Gear Jambers drags at Parks Field in Ill. It looked like a scarry drive. His brother had a fast 41 Studebaker coupe with an Olds engine
