Actually, at this point, the Surfers had sold the car to Richie & Bobby Bandel, from New York City. The Surfers were helping out the first time the Bandel Bros. took the car out to the track. I met the Bandel Bros in NYC one time, in 1965. Interesting guys, I could tell you some stories but I don't know if the Statute of Limitations has expired or not...
SWI66 post. This wins the Unique award today, guessing a late 50's Mopar (57/58/59 DeSota) sectioned, any info w/Pic ? I always like and look for the different stuff
WOW! I think somebody struck a nerve.
Love the deuce 5w in the background.
It is spelled ,,,,smörgåsbord!!
Is there any information on the first attached shot? From the looks of the tires on the cars this must be at a paved track somewhere.
The other shot looks like Johnny Thomson and Jud Larson at Williams Grove in 1958. Jud won.
Thanks for posting, Rootie!
That isn't Williams Grove, maybe Sacramento and I think it is Tony B.
just a thought.
So you wasted your time to rag on me We are just having a little fun, lighten up!!
So, I can't spell....
Right out of Fountain Valley High School!
Without Judy.....there would have been no Mickey.
Sorry, I have no further info on the #8 sprint.
FWIW my info says it is Larson and Thomson at WG 1958. I'm pretty sure it's not Sacto as it had a much different outer guard rail.
Their car rusted away before their very eyes as they drove.
Or peel bananas with your feet... Wait, did I spell bananas right?
Let's move on...
I like calling them "...temperature sensors"
Tiny Naylors, Hollywood, 1952
L.A. High School around 1915
Lockheed on Hollywood Way, Burbank, 1940's
LAFD Company No. 39, 14415 Sylvan Street, Van Nuys July 15, 1940
Carthay Circle Theater, premiere of The Life of Emile Zola, Sept. 9, 1937
That's something I need to try.
That's a pretty ballsy move in front of a deuce & a half.......:-0....
It's carrying US Mail so it's probably barely moving.
I attended the Williams Grove race in question. Larson did not have a handkerchief in his mouth. He sat larger in the car than that pictured. I do not remember the buildings that close to the track. Larson got the Bignotti ride after the WG race, Bettenhausen went to the Zink ride.
I can be wrong, but Jud was a much large figure.
Second edit. I am wrong, larson wore a watch which can be seen.
Separate names with a comma.
