    No, I didn't say that. Hank just said the true story was not what the mythology stated. I trusted Ray because he was very close to Hank.

    Although the photo states that it was taken in 1935, the fire apparatus is much older than that, probably built in the early 1920's. Many Fire Departments spent money "modernizing" their equipment in the 1930's, rather than putting out bids for new equipment. Most fire engines built in the 1920's did not have windshields. These were added later, as well as replacing the original solid rubber tires with pneumatic tires as shown here.

    There has to be a story behind this picture. Does anyone know what this is all about?

    I'm not sure who is in the first attached photo but I am assuming that this is one of the cars that ran in the NASCAR Speedway Division in 1952/53.

    The second shot shows Hector Honroe with his Black Deuce. Is that Gordon Wooley in the cockpit?

    The third photo shows the twin engined Porsche driven by Bill Cheesbourg at Indianapolis in 1966. The car missed the show but you have to give them credit for trying something really different. The tube frame chassis was actually built by Joe Huffaker for owner Al Stein. Stein's father had worked for the Faegol bus/truck plant in Oakland and as a kid Stein heard all about the twin engined buses and the Indy car that Lou Faegol had built.

    As always thanks for the great photos, Rootie!

    That's Jim Moughan in the Black Deuce.
    The 33 car is the ex-Les Anderson Kennedy Tank Spl. after it went to the NASCAR Speedway Div. 1952, driven by Steve McGrath.

    And FWIW yesterday I posted this pic of Anderson's first Kennedy Tank Spl. that he took to Indy 47. Obviously repowered and looks to have been shortened also.
