    The first photo shows Pat Flaherty and A.J. Watson (standing at far left with longer hair) after qualifying at Indianapolis in 1949. Both were veterans of the track roadster scene both on the West Coast and especially in the Midwest. They ended up missing the show. Watson actually built the car and it used a flathead Mercury engine. I'm unclear on this but from memory I think the Granatellis also had a Mercury engined car that got wrecked so they ended up putting their Grancor name on this car.

    I don't know much about the sprint car in the other photo but the wire wheels on the rear are interesting. Maybe they used the wire wheels because they had them and they fit their hubs. But there were some old timers that swore they got better traction under acceleration with the more flexible wire wheels than with mags. There might have been some truth to this with friction or some lever shocks but once shocks got better it shouldn't have made much difference.

    The Roosevelt Dairy car was a top west coast car in the early 60s and was the 1961 CRA Championship car. Never seen a picture of it with wire wheels before and the size of the RR tire tells me that shot was much later in its life. Maybe it was a photo op after it was retired (?)
