    I believe this is Doug Stearley. He owned Indy cars and a sprint car. Two of the best were killed in his cars though. Johnny Thomson and Tony Bettenhausen. The picture looks like outside Gasoline Alley Indy.

    When I worked the hot test in this building, a 390 came off the overhead rail and damned near squished me !

    I recognize the paint scheme, 60's in Wisconsin all of our kid's cars looked like that from rust repair as most of the 50's cars were rust buckets already, we patched them up, painted them sometimes, but many were patch primered till they were sold, wrecked or junked. Many good memories from that time frame.

    Here's a picture of this car at my cousin's drag strip in Windsor Ontario in the same era.

    Lots of Chevrolet promotional pictures appear to have been taken near Carmel for the ‘57 models. Others are recognizably from Scenic Drive.

    I don't know the source of this photo, though it reminds me a something my grandpa told me when I was a boy. In the post-WW2 period some automobiles were shipped down the Mississippi River on barges. He went on to say that a barge load of Henry J's sunk near Cairo, IL when struck by another barge. Sounds incredible, I know, but I believe my grandpa. Is that a picture of an auto barge used on a river, or maybe one of the great lakes? Anybody else know of shipping cars along a river?
