    Hey Gary,

    How did you come across this pic? We have this car, but never scene this image. Any more by chance?

    Thanks

    Roootie, that's a really interesting photo of the wire wheeled big car with some kind of flat head engine. I'm not an expert by any means but I don't recognize the engine at all; it seems like it has too many head bolts for anything I've seen before.

    And the second attached photo shows Marshman and Parnelli running in 1962; looks like the track is Langhorne.

    Thanks for posting!!!

    I'm no expert on the old flatties either but I'm thinking maybe a Lincoln (?) I'm sure others will know for sure.

    WHY do they always have to sit on top of the damned car. Can't they just stand beside it?

    I was always a big Pontiac fan, and I still am BUT, we replaced a bunch of timing chains and gears on 60's Pontiacs. One guy I worked said they must have made them out of melted down model car plastic. Come to think of it I was no fan of the slim-jim transmissions either:rolleyes:

    We used to have an A and P store here in Dearborn...
    I think it folded in the early 80's.. We also had a Farmer Jack.. That went belly up also...

  25. I'm a retired GM parts counter man. I still remember the part numbers for a timing chain replacement. 483047 Cam gear, 532993 timing chain, 9775217 timing cover set, 9794125 oil pan set. I changed from a Chevy dealership to a Pontiac dealership from 71-72.

    If I didn't know who Ed Roth was, I sure as hell wouldn't be motivated by this car to have him paint mine!

    Not in 1958, I believe that started in 1959

    Pat: What was the other name for the Automat?
    Horne and Hardart or something like that. I only went to Sardi's a few times with my wife.
