  8. I'm not Gary, but I can offer some info on the Caddy.
    It started life as one of the Cadillac "LeMans" G.M. concept car in 1953. Bought by Shoe magnate Harry Karl who had Barris customize it for his wife actress Marie MacDonald, it then changed hands several times and finally was lost to an accidental fire.

  9. This Corvette is a little much for me, and I really hate the wheels. That being said, I think a simple wheel and tire change would change the whole look of this car. Maybe era correct 5 spoke Americans and black tires, or better yet, chrome wheels with baby moons and 1" whitewalls. And lose the gold coves, maybe paint the coves black to tie in with the flames. 39273525_2090988267578221_7059925554488672256_n.jpg

    They also used the hood bows of the Vauxhall Vagabond convertibles, they were the perfect size & with good proportions.

    Looks like it to me, Jim. We'll see what Rootie says.

    Woolley took over the ride from Johnny White when White joined USAC in 1963. White had been the 1962 IMCA champion so that accounts for the #1. The photo looks like it was taken at an IMCA race at Winchester in '63. Woolley ended up as the 1963 IMCA champ.
