    I believe that's a Lotus 17.

    Don't ask me how I remembered that. I haven't seen or thought of those cars since about 1974[/QUOTE]

    Difficult to be sure from the original image, but to me, it looks like it might be a Lotus 11 These have a taller "fin" behind the driver's head.

    your picture shows a Lotus 11 [Lotus 17's had straight sills and flat front arches]

    It's a Lotus 15 without a roll bar

    The driver looks like Raymond Mays

    Thanks for posting the utube video of the Rocket Car. I was wondering how the restoration was coming. I saw this car years ago while it was in barn storage near Lockport.

    Hey Gary,

    Welcome back…nice capture of the original Disneyland monorail. That was certainly an eye opener, as a little kid, when it was available for all to see and ride. Even when walking around the Disneyland grounds, upon seeing the monorail whizzing past just made it great. We were used to seeing the regular trains come by our junior high school as the main tracks to the LA/Long Beach Harbor were right there at the end of the baseball field.

    It was so cool to be able to sit in real seats and watch everything whiz by the window. It was my first real train ride. (not counting the “red cars,” now called the BlueLine, from Long Beach to Los Angeles back in the old days)

    Jnaki

    There have been many changes to this monorail system at Disneyland. Progress…But, for the young kids of today, that is their form of train transportation. The thrill of seeing something whizzing by is still there after seeing the modern version.

    Meet the Fleet


    "The Disneyland Monorail is comprised of the Red, Blue and Orange Mark VII trains. Computer monitored, the fleet is operated and controlled at a speed of approximately 30 mph by onboard pilots. And because the Disneyland Monorail uses a 600-volt DC power source, the trains do not emit exhaust or pollutants.

    Streaks of Light
    Thanks to an innovative painting technique developed by the Disney Imagineers, the surface of the trains shimmers with visual electricity. Watch closely and you’ll see the colors shift with a simple brush of light—from red to crimson, from blue to teal and from orange to a golden sunburst. It's not just a stroke of technological innovation; it's a work of art!

    A Blast from the Past

    The Disneyland Monorail was the first transportation system of its kind in America. It was based on a system built by the ALWEG company and discovered by Walt Disney while traveling in Germany. The monorail first appeared in Disneyland Park in 1959 with its "Googie" architecture, a space age look that was enormously popular during the 1950s.

    The current version of the Disneyland Monorail combines the sleek styling of the 1959 classic with new technologies and subtle design changes, bringing a retro-futuristic look and contemporary feel to the timeless Disneyland icon.

    The Disneyland Monorail celebrated its 50th anniversary on June 14, 2009."

    I'd guess dirty finger nails but he doesn't look like much of a labor type guy to me.
