Betty Grable not Carole Lombard
I use the smiley face imoji when I'm being sarcastically humorous.
Gee, your humor is the BEST on the board! maybe the entire internet!
Really, not kidding!
Moe Howard (born Moses Horwitz) and wife Helen at their home in Toluca Lake--in Moe's Cadillac Series 62 Sedan, 1952. Helen's cousin and sister looking on--Helen was also cousin to Harry Houdini.
Oregon's Art Pollard, 36 Willys.
This and the above post are Los Angeles, 1950s-60s
Eddie Ford behind the wheel , Castlemaine , Victoria. ( owner of the old Aussie CustomRodder, started in 1967 )
was that Peter Swift with him ??
That is Peter Swift in the car with Eddie Ford. . Here is the car, Build started in 1962. Last pic as of now. There is a thread somewhere else on the h.a.m.b. about the car. Note the steel beercan jack stands. ( not tin )
That car and story/history is very cool.
So you have demonstrated you don't know what Carole Lombard or Betty Grable looked like. Believe what you like. but I am not wrong.
Peter is here with the screen name, guess what ? " Swifty "
Henry, what sort of overhead motor is that in the Eddie Ford T?
G'day Mart, 318 cu in Dodge. BTW, h.a.m.b member Flat Oz is Swifty,s son.
Somebody please school me on the partial tire overlay on the tire of the twin Ardun car ! Purpose ??????
Thanks for the interesting photo of Troy Ruttman, Rootie!
I have to wonder if this is being done a day or so after Ruttman won the 500. Towing the race car behind the truck with the movie camera crew is a little different. This footage might show up somewhere in an old manufacturer's film of the race. Back then it was the various automotive accessory firms that made promotional racing films.
LSR tires are very thin and made of Unobtainiem. The tire overlay is to protect the tire surface while on the trailer traveling to Wendover.
