    Here's Andy Granatelli at Indianapolis in 1948. I believe the car was originally one of the 1935 Miller-Fords that were factory backed. He crashed this car in Practice.

    I've wondered just how Granatelli managed to get approved to drive the car as aside from his exhibition runs in rocket powered show cars I don't think he had much racing experience.

    Thanks for sharing, Rootie!

    Makes a mud fence look good:) But consider it was just 19 years later and his car came within a few laps of winning the 500 and was probably the most radical high-tech race car ever to that point.

  22. Back in 1959, I ran a flattie powered rope tow. The engine was actually permanently mounted in a shed. It was completely reliable, and always started on the cold days.
    Nice memories,

    A little scoop of dirt in each valve cover works great
