Good to see Gary back...even if for one post.
What would the asking price be ? $400 or $450 with the new top ?
Think it will Fly??
Thanks Rootie for all the great posts. Second picture is Roger Ward in Ken Brenn's Offy. Ward has just won the Formula Libre race @ Lime Rock Park 1959. Beating all the big boys on a Sports car track. Very famous race.
56 Caddy SOLD them a new one
56 Plymouth going fishing
57 new Chevys in the showroom
576 Ford Fairlane 500
The first attached photo shows Denver local Keith Andrews after winning the 1954 Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Another driver who showed talent but wasn't really lucky in the end.
The second photo shows Mario Andretti's Overseas Nationals Airways dirt car on the trailer in 1968. Racing was a lot simpler then.
Third attached photo shows mechanic Harry Stephens with the Walsh 9 dirt car. Both Johnnie Parsons and Spider Webb drove this car in 1955 but the car missed the 500 that year. Harry Stephens won the 500 with Parsons in 1950.
The last photo shows the Chapman crew setting corner weights with driver Dick Rathmann in the cockpit in 1963. Everyone must have used the same grain scales because you see old photos of them with just about every car using them both inside and outside of the garages. I guess no one worried much about leveling the scales to each other back then and just used them on whatever surface that was available whether it was level or not.
I bet that street in Cape Cod looks much the same today.
Reversed image fixed.
^^ 105E ford Anglia behind the subject in the pic above??
