    How often do you run across finned, cast aluminum rocker covers for Mopar Poly V8s? Wow!

    The Netherlands are known for wet weather, but we have snow too.
    The lack of mountains asks for creativity.

    Most Corvairs in Holland in the sixties came from GM Antwerp, assembled from KKD shipped from the US.
    (no, mine came from Denver Colorado in the nineties)

    Norm Longfield's T out of Sydney, Australia. The photo is probably from the early 70's. The car is still in Norm's collection although it now has small block Chevy power.

    A Roy Baggs shot of one of Bobby Langley's Scorpions at Pomona--mid 60's judging by the Mopar to the right of the shot.

    Not to sound argumentative, but are you sure about that? Dizz Wilson's car is in the background and I don't remember him running any of his own cars in USAC or AAA. Perhaps an IMCA show somewhere?

    Jim McElreath was in Wilson's car that day at Langhorne which is the day Bobby Marvin was killed.

    Hello,
    Wow, a custom tail light arrangement for that 58 Impala. The stock ones were red, white, red. The most popular changeover was to get an extra, stock, red lens and rewire the lights so they all came on at once when the brakes were applied. In order to stay legal with a backup light, we also installed a small bulb light near the license plate. Some just still used the middle bulb, and the back up was not very bright.
