    @HEMIDAV - thanks for posting this one. Grease crayon on this '58s Blue Flame 6 valve cover : PS PB. Guessing power steering and brakes, Impala trim, so very possible.

    Hello,

    Riverside Raceway was the location for one of the biggest drag races on the West Coast. It was a showdown between the best in the East vs the best of the West. The biggest names in drag racing were there to support their own areas.

    One of the races showed the supercharged SBC of Valley Home Service versus the newest addition to the Tommy Ivo arsenal, the big, twin injected, Buick FED. The popular red cladding was missing for this race.

    Valley Home services FED


    At the time, we all knew about the Tommy Ivo race cars from the single injected Buick, to the 671 Buick powered version, but not many had seen the twin injected Buick version, especially in all black.

    single version progression


    This 1959 drag meet at Riverside Raceway was a first for us. The first time to see the big names from anywhere except from the West Coast. It was the first time to go to another dragstrip other than Lions Dragstrip near our Westside Long Beach house. And, the first time to see the legendary Don Garlits, Chris Karamesines (The Greek) along with the Speed Sport Roadster in action.

    It was a day to remember as the first full fledged East vs West competition took place in most classes. The Valley Home Services SBC vs the twin Buick of Tommy Ivo was a So Cal race within the eliminations. It was one of the highlights of that long eventful day.
