    The reason I post race car pics here instead of the drag cars in motion thread is because I want people to SEE them.
    This thread has, BY FAR, the biggest viewership. History is important (in my view).

    I thought that's who that was. Larry's father was a race driver who was killed in a track roadster at Kokomo, Indiana. His brother Ron Burton became a well known racing artist who at one time was under contract to Miller Brewing to do exclusive paintings of their sponsored Indy, stock, and drag cars. Ron also worked as a crew member for many drivers including A.J. Foyt.

  5. Here's all my aunts and uncles, and your too if you grew up in the 50's-60's!

    One of my aunts had a THAT GREEN 53 Chevy. Do you remember the color? Seemed like all Chevies were that color.

    A great looking roadster pick-up, Gary, but given that the owner drives it on the street, I think I would have gone for front wheel brakes, what do you think?
     
  11. Yes. I'd run brakes today, but probably not in 1964.

    I'll bet that old Cadillac towing that huge U-Haul has a clamp on bumper hitch they rented from U-Haul to tow that trailer.
    Clamp on bumper hitches were real common as well as clamp on tow bars.
    Not many family cars could tow a trailer like that today

    Don't have clue as the numbers, but 63 was the last year of the big window option, 64 cabs were much different.

  17. I wasn't aware of a big window option in anything other than the 61-63 unibodies. The 61-66 cabs of the other styles remained mostly unchanged through the years. The beds were really only thing that significantly changed in 64.
