What a great shot of Dave MacDonald and wife Sherry in the #98 Cobra. MacDonald was on the verge of becoming one of the biggest names in racing when his career was cut short.
And the second attached photo is from 1960 and shows Parnelli Jones leading another driver at Terre Haute. Rootie, I'm not sure who the second driver is but it looks a little like Don Branson. Any info on this photo?
KEEF59! This is what this thread is all about! People I don't know yet I wonder how their lives turned out, are they still with us, do they remember the good times they had, I hope so. It was a good time to be alive and if you missed it, I'm sorry because it will never come again.
oh boy!!!!!more kidney belts~!!
Yes and it's a new photo.
I just want to thank all of the contributors to this thread for letting us look into the past and also for the memories that it brings back!
Branson was in the Estes car in 1960, the paint scheme on that car looks like Elmer George to me.
