  1. I'm aware that some of the buildings in the photos still stand despite "progress" and earthquakes but unfortunately not many.

    I don't recognize the midget in the first shot. Judging from the sponsor name could this be a UMRA car?

    And the second photo is really interesting. Wire wheeled car with what appears to be an early roll bar. Is Ernie Koch somehow involved with this car?

    Thanks again, Rootie!

    No info on the midget
    The Koch Spl. was a champ car owned by Ray Koch a long time Harley dealer in Denver who fielded open wheel cars in the 50s-60s. Raced oval track throughout the central states and at the PP hill climb.
