Looks like the car of Jorge Daponte at Indianapolis in 1954. However, I'm certainly not recognizing the car at all. On the one hand it looks like a Kurtis but it also has what looks like a Grand Prix type windscreen. And I have to wonder what kind of engine is in the car. Is there any additional information on this one? Somehow I doubt that Daponte ever passed a Rookie Test.

Plush eye pokers....
I'm not sure. The site I mined the photo from has no details on any of their photos.
What happened to all this cool kind of stuff? You just don't see anything like it anymore.
I have a feeling it's because everything sucks these days. That's why a thread like this is so great.

Sept. 4, 1951: The original Los Angeles Times caption reported:
The city marshal’s office yesterday began inspection of motor vehicles for mechanical defects at four locations, taking over the duties formerly handled by the California Highway Patrol. Here Mrs. Diane Tesler speeds up her motor while Sgt. Charles Harding checks the car for excess smoke and other defects.
