    Colby Scrogins 62 championship ride may have looked rough in 62. It looked fine when built in 49 as Kurtis chassis # X1. In its early years it was driven by three Indy winners. It is now at rest in my barn.

    When the narrowed up the track width and put on the bigger front tires ,that just killed the looks of the F1 cars and each year they get worse

    Those are centers I bought from JT Presley Co., Cleavland, Al. They are the standard wide 5 centers, without the vents, they sell them both ways. Great people to deal with BTW.
