  6. Connors, who was born in Brooklyn, had one pinch hit at bat without a hit while playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1949. While playing 1b for the Chicago Cubs in 1952, he appeared in 66 games, 57 of which were at 1b. He had 201 at bats with 48 hits, 5 doubles, 1 triple, and 2 home runs. He had 10 pinch hit appearances with one hit. Those were not exactly stellar numbers for a 28 year old, 6' 5" left-hand hitting Dodger, nor a 30 year old left-hand hitting Cub. No wonder he took up acting. He starred in the 1956 movie, "Hot Rod Girl," but will forever be remembered as "The Rifleman."

  9. This is a slick car. I like the use of the 26-27 body over the more common 23 era body. The little bit longer bed looks good too.

  10. I was thinking the same thing. At first I thought the 59 Chevy was coming in a little to hot, but the Buick is doing the same thing!

    YEP!-------Remember when Sepulveda was the end of the runway?----There was a gas station across the street, planes started getting bigger so they closed it & made the underpass.

    Looks like a Nike missile being moved to it's launch silo. Even though they were secret everybody in town knew when they were coming and turned out to watch them on the road when I was a youngster.

    We had several Nike sites in Connecticut and they got outdated and the sites reverted to State control. From the 70's onward my bomb squad used the to burn the fireworks we had picked up at several of the abandoned sites in state control.

    Hello,

    Nice find of the Leffler/Loukas Competition Coupe at the 1960 Bakersfield Smokers 2nd Annual March Meet. This Competition Coupe from Leffler/Loukas was on a “terror tour” of the West Coast dragstrips. We saw them at Lions Dragstrip in competition and for a world record trophy presentation. Then, several months later, up in Bakersfield for the annual Smokers March Meet in 1960.


    TROPHY PRESENTATION AT Lions 1959

    This Competition Coupe was the record holder and was very fast. But, they did not need the advantage of a so called, “California Stop Sign” rolling start against Jerry Card’s Black Comp Coupe. (Californians are know to get tickets for their famous “rolling stops” at those red, octagonal Stop Signs ) But, for some unknown reason, it was deemed a legal start in the Competition Coupe elimination race. (Poor Jerry Card…)

    Jnaki

    The photo by Doug Peterson is well known and shows the creative designs/power of the Neil Leffler/John Loukas Race Shop.

    Leffler vs Card Watch the start…fair?
