    I always loved the fifty four car. It was beautiful in its well thought out details and build quality, yet simple. The car was just "right" - one of those you know it when you see it things.

    As I remember, Jerry Poland was in the seat.

    The car also had the original Gaerte customer engine in it.

    It's still around as a " survivor " , complete with the original engine, but I'm not sure who the current caretaker is.

    Edit: I think I screwed up - that looks like an earlier car and I think the driver was Bud Tinglestad.

    Also, is that a young Lloyd Ruby in the first picture?

    Looks like a great promotional photo for the midget races at Playland Park in Houston. The Playland Park track hosted both midgets and stock cars on a weekly basis for several years. It was located on the same basic site as today's NRG Stadium (Houston Texans NFL team) and the now repurposed Astrodome. A young A.J. Foyt was a regular at Playland Park when he was just starting out.

    That's Tingelstad's car at Altamont Ca. 1966. He's standing in front of it combing his hair.

    Agree on the 54. Just looks right, beautiful car.

    Thanks for posting the picture and a bit of the history.

    Hi Rootie the 77 roadster is my uncle Joe Giusti from Stockton California he started in roadster and ended up driving sprint cars in 1965 and then Super Modifieds in 1972 . He was Nascar hobby stock Champion in 1960 won the Gold Cup in 1960 Stockton Champ 1959-1960 hardtops .He ran asphalt and dirt and won on both at West Capitol, Hughes, Roseville,Stockton,Alviso. He was great driver and fan favorite were ever he raced. He built his own cars and was a great mechanic.

  30. Yep! You gotta watch out for the trunk spring tension on those DeSotos and other Chrysler products.
