    Actually it's a post war pic. In 47 it ran as the Bristow McManus #28 and in 48 it was a dnq as the Gustason car with Roland Free driving both years. The different numbering over the 2 years is really confusing though and I can't really explain it.

    Notice what I believe to be 2 '40 Ford hoods for the nose and the Blimp Hangar in the background.
    Thanks Lougbang!

    Not necessarily. I'm 53 and I was going to ask the same question.
    I don't think it has to due with age so much as it does to not living in a big city

    I'm 75 and when I started out the apprentices got sent out every hour or so to rub all of the chalk marks off of the tires. Always a game of cat and mouse.
     
  21. Love side curtains! And this roadster.

  24. That's the "Meter Maid"... he marks the tire, comes back in an hour when the meter is expired... if the car with the chalk on the tire is still there he gets a ticket!

    Jungle Park race track was forced to close around 1960 due to high injury and fatality rate. It was said to be the most dangerous track in the Mid-west, partly because of no safety equipment ( spectators often put out fires with beer and cooler water) and if you ran over the banked turns you usually hit a tree since it was surrounded by woods. All that's left today is weeds and full size trees growing on the barely visable track, a crumbling main grandstand some fence and the main gate and sign. In its hay day, there had been a hotel and restaurant on the grounds.
