A few that I've found. They're soo COOL, that they probably already been posted!
The first shot shows Elmer George with J.C. Agajanian. I didn't know he ever drove an Agajanian midget but I guess he did. Is there any information on this one, Rootie?
The second looks like Johnny Rutherford in the Dave Beatson Chevy during his IMCA days. I believe he might have run this car a few times in USAC as well running on a Temporary Permit.
All kinds of people show up in this photo. Bill Forbes chief mechanic Dave Laycock has his hand on the tail while driver Jim McElreath puts his foot on a front tire. And they're pitted next to A.J. Foyt who is on the left in the photo. I believe this is from 1963 but I don't where it was taken. And info available?
Thanks as always!!!
Indyrjc, yes Rutherford drove that car in 1962 at Reading and Williams Grove. I say that the champ car race is Duqouin.
Don't know for sure about the Elmer George pic, though I'd say it was 62/3 when he was selling off his own cars and picking up outside rides. The trophy girl looks a lot like a young Betty White so it may be at Ascot on a west coast swing.

From a movie I think
Bob Muravez (allias Floyd Lippencotte Jr.) taking some time off from driving the "Freight Train" and the "Pulsator" dragsters, in the seat of Don "The Beachcomber" Johnson's fuler at Pomona. I remember driving up to Las Vegas with Bob and this digger for a big race, a race he won if my memory is correct...
Yep! I already did...
I remember those cars, the Canadian Pontiacs were built on Chev frames and had either small block (283) or big block 348/409 chev engines installed.
We used to have a lot of trouble at race tracks in the USA getting them classified into the right class, NHRA
6 tires wide x 11 deep x 3 long at 25 pounds per tire.
By my "guestimate" he has about 5000 pounds of tires in the bed.
No wonder that right/rear complained.
Wow! Does anybody recognize this one? Super cool.
Musta' been that Harvey Wallbanger guy - there's NO WINGS on the plane, probably knocked them off hitting "something."
A Fulton would have solved that problem. Bob
The movie was The Lively Set. Had to run down to my video vault and check.
