    Stan Starr and Stan Starr Jr of Nashville Tn. preparing their car for the 1961 Daytona modified race . Picture from The Nashville Tennessean paper January 1961. This picture and many others can be found on Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway history site hosted by Steve Cavanugh.
     
  4. V-4, 20 liter. Front wheel drive (the first one they say). Designed by Christie - the guy who invented tank track suspension - that the US Army didn't want, so he sold the technology to the Axis powers - before they would be known as "Axis Powers".

    Now think about that: 4 cylinders - each one with the same displacement as a small block Chevy.

    Wow, you can actually see the car move from the waves ... probably just a shell ... otherwise one ruined '65 ... of course I'm sure it was of no consequence to GM... lol

     
  8. I'll bet there isn't much left of that Chevrolet today, no matter where it is.

    During the process of setting up the assembly line for production, several cars are built that cannot be sold for various reasons. These are used for advertising, testing, and are usually destroyed.

    Actually 1904. This is the Bexhill Speed Trials which were first held in 1902. That is a White steam car on the right, a model that did not exist in 1902.
