    Most of these pic's were taken at Riverside Dragway near Melbourne in the mid to late 60's. 27023339_10155296596658634_5544487118814102750_o.jpg 27023434_10155296643523634_4667229238466105889_o.jpg

    I remember when living in Sydney(Bondi 1972) and late at night dropping someone off around Woolloomooloo(yes a real suburb) but accidentally took a wrong turn and ended up heading north on the Bridge. Managed to do a U turn, bounced the old FJ over the concrete divider and was heading south again in no time!!!

  13. I could swear that this car belonged to the guy that dated the girl ( Annette ) across the street from us in Tootgarook in the early 1960's. I was about 8 years old and allways ran outfront when i heard the car.

    The first attached photo appears to be Bobby Unser in the Chalik Epperly laydown in 1963 at Indianapolis. Unser took his test in this car before jumping to the Granatelli Novi. Bob Harkey then got the ride and turned 150 MPH laps in Practice before hitting the wall in the car. And it looks like Norm Hall in the #61 Federal Engineering car behind Unser.

    The second photo shows Charlie Masters at Terre Haute probably around 1968. The car owner was E.T. Morse who ran the Kentucky distillery that produced the Ezra Brooks branded bourbon. I'm not 100% sure but this may be the ex-K.E.Y. sprint car that was driven by Bobby Unser and several others.

    I have had a few inquiries about this ring. It was Joe Sostilio's from Jimmy Bryans 1958 Indy win. Joe was a close friend of Jimmy's and was on the pit crew that year. All the crew received these rings. The 90 represents 90 seconds for the 3 pit stops combined, a new record set that year for the fastest stops. Joe proudly wore this ring the rest of his life and when he passed away he willed it to me, A great honor . It is inscribed on the inside " to Joe from Jimmy and George ". Joe was with Jimmy when he was killed at Langhorne and flew back to Arizona with his body and of course was a pall bearer. Joe told me that Jimmy's death affected him more than any of the others during his own great car career. IMG_0814.jpg
