    Maggie, thanks for this image. The officer with the sunglasses is Wally who was still on the force when I was in high school (class of '67). By then he was relegated to parking enforcement riding the Harley 3 wheeler and marking tires. We called him Wally the Meter Maid. This made me search for other pictures.

    Springfield Chief of Police Bill Davis was the first vehicle to cross the new bridge. He was also a Harley racer. Davis_1 (1).jpg

    Some great prints Swi66. I really like the early Packard (looks to be a Twin Six) and the Pierce Arrow (with that windshield appears to be a custom body-a friend owned one very similar). Not sure of the red touring as to its manufacturer. The other one appears to be a 40 Packard 180 and the tan car may be a mid 30s Cadillac ( appears so- may be a LaSalle). Great prints.

    Picture of Union Park sponsored Pontiac is of Harold Ramsey who previously raced a killer 1957 283 fuel injected Chevy that I believe won the NHRA nationals in Detroit 1958? He and his wife used to flat tow the fuel injected 283 hp with a dual four barrel 270 hp Chevy convertible.

    The Stubby Stubblefield driven "Catfish" at a dirt track. Stubblefield actually won a 100 miler at Roby, Indiana in this car although I'm not sure if that's where this photo was taken. This car utilized some pretty decent aerodynamic concepts for the time. And when you think about it now maybe that big rear fin worked a little like the side plates on one of today's winged sprint cars and made the left rear work better on the dirt tracks.

    BTW, for whatever reason you generally don't see a lot of photos with the two man cars on dirt.

    Thanks, Rootie.

    OK I like "an alluring fragrance" as much as the next guy but what the hell does Basin ST. smell like? Basin Street?
     
  24. The red touring may just be a generic car but there are hints of circa 1913 National about it.

  25. Maybe a JD Harley? - one of the quickest things on the road in its day. With the speedo mounted there you would not want to be thrown forward in a hurry!

    That is a "Dodo bird" right there!
    A Borgward Isabella Coupe [they ceased production in 1961]I've only ever seen one in my life back in the early 70's owned by a friends grandparents

    The Borgward name has been revised 54 years later as a joint venture in China . They now produce a Borgward SUV
