    Actually that's Mario in the midget. Though he pretty much gave up the midgets when he went to USAC that is at a off season indoor show at Ft. Wayne around 65/6.

    Yes that's Jacobi on the right in the second pic but I don't think that's J.R. on the left. That was just after Jacobi "tweeked" the Vita Fresh car in practice 63.

    Los Angeles International Airport
    upload_2017-9-13_3-16-0.png LAX..."The distinctive white building resembles a flying saucer that has landed on its four legs. The initial design was created by James Langenheim, of Pereira & Luckman, subsequently taken to fruition by a team of architects and engineers headed by William Pereira and Charles Luckman, that also included Paul Williams and Welton Becket.

    The appearance of the building's signature crossed arches as homogeneous structures is a design illusion, created by topping four steel-reinforced concrete legs extending approximately 15 feet above the ground with hollow stucco-covered steel trusses. To counteract earthquake movements, the Theme Building was retrofitted in 2010 with a tuned mass damper without changing its outward appearance. It is now closed.

    One bright spot: The observation deck is still open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The building, declared an L.A. cultural and historical building in 1992, was designed by Paul R. Williams, Pereira & Luckman and Robert Herrick Carter."


    Hello,

    As impressive as this was for a well designed building, it was also a restaurant. Talk about impressing a date. No, we could not fly somewhere, but we could get close enough to see the airport and planes. My date was impressed that we were actually going to the Los Angeles Airport…she thought we were going on a jet. Ha! My pocketbook said “gas and dinner only…”

    It is listed as a historic site, but travelers usually won’t walk across from the terminals to go to the restaurant. The main reason being, it is such a hassle to get back in through security check points these days. So, with the advent of “high-end foody” restaurants opening all over the terminals, this stand-alone restaurant will have to deliver something outstanding to draw people back, once it opens again. The architecture is not enough...

    American Motors took one shot at the performance market in the 1950s with the 1957 Rebel, sporting a 327 CID V8 crammed into a compact Rambler body.

    In 1957 came the Rambler Rebel, which combined the compact Rambler platform with 108-inch wheelbase and the 327 cubic-inch, 255 hp V8 normally found in the big Nash Ambassador. With its muscular power-to-weight ratio, the unlikely package produced 0-to-60 mph performance second only to the Corvette in 1957, and a performance legend of sort was born.

    Production Rebels used the Nash Ambassador V8 with Carter four-barrel carburetor, solid lifters, a 9.5:1 compression ratio, and an official rating of 255 hp.

    The Rebel’s cabin was all standard Rambler in upmarket Custom trim, with nothing to suggest a performance theme. Note the clutch pedal on the floor and three-on-the-tree column shift lever.
