  3. Look how simple this car is that Dago 88 posted. If Vern Tardel would turn you loose in his place for a weekend, you could drive it to work on Monday. This one doesn't look like a driver yet. I don't see any brake lines, and of course no radiator. I might have enough parts to actually build this laying around here. 13124720_1132976606733681_1142194399000706813_n.jpg

    Oh, I read that wrong, sorry Maggie.
    I remember telling a friend of mine back in high school how lucky he was to work in a pizza joint, told him it must really smell good all the time (I've always been a pizza addict), he said you would grow to hate it.:eek:

    Glider launch doesn't take a lot of ground speed. With most enough lift is generated at around 20 mph to have responsive controls.considering on coming wind and lift generated by updraft at hills edge gets them airborne more than high ground speed.

    It looks like the Axle tubes are bottomed out on the frame
    The body looks sectioned, and it is RHD [cool low profile though]

    Yes, it's Karl Young at Gilmore and it looks like it may be it's maiden race. Suppose to be Frank Kurtis' first midget. Lives at the Justice Bros. museum nowadays.

    Both my daughter and granddaughter worked at pizza places when they were in high school and loved it. And they still love pizza.

    The bucket in question was built by Peter Swift from Melbourne Australia & has been on the road continuously since the mid 60's. Peter still owns it:)

  19. I had one glider flight back in 1970, and that was the method used to launch the machine. The machine had enough jam to allow us to soar for over 45 minutes. I was highly impressed, because I was flying the Voodoo, a supersonic fighter that had the glide ratio of a battery powered rock.

    When I was in the 9th grade LaFayette Ford was just across the street from my Algebra class window. Some of the drivers and cars they sponsored were on display from time to time. Very distracting for a kid who loved car stuff. Dan Gurney was one of my favorites.

    Here's a video interview with the builder. Looks like it still has zero frame clearance for the rear axle.

    1958, off hand I forget circumstances but Fangio drove the DVL 29 and A.J. ended up in a different car.

    Foyt shook down the Dean Van Lines car for Fangio who actually raced it. He had bummed a ride to Monza with no ride in sight as the Fangio deal had already been made. A.J. actually raced the Scalvi & Amos roadster in the 2nd and 3rd Monza heats after Maurice Trintignant stepped out after Heat #1. I'm not sure why Trintignant quit.

    The Richert photo was taken at Terre Haute (circa 1965); probably at a USAC race but the track ran IMCA events as well for a few years during that time period.

    BTW, Rootie is there any info on the big car driver getting the trophy in your first photo?

    And that's a great shot of Vukovich in the midget!

    Thanks for the great photos as always!!!
