Iowa State fair, 1962 or 63' Gordon Wooley in the Offy #1, vs Jim McCune in the Chevy
Kinda a rough looking sprinter owned by Ken Worth, Colby Scroggin at Imperial 1962, he won 2 features at the Iowa State Fair in this car, this year.
1963 Iowa State Fair, Jud Larson returns from heart trouble, his first race back in the Speed Helm Chevy #3
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.
Bay Darnell in the butt ugly Stoye Spl. Du Quoin 65.
Mario and Dee Jones Winchester 66.
Bobby Unser, Colby Scroggins Ascot 62.
Wow! that could be the ugliest race car ever!
...not counting today's F1 and GP cars.
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.
Looks like mine
This one gets my vote, I've seen farm equipment that looked racier.
That´s the right action: without fear at the limit!!!
Herk and A.J., Terra Haute 61.
Mike Nazurak, Pat O'Conner circa 54.

This is butt ugly.
The way I remember my favorite era in open wheel racing.
Thanks everyone for the great photos!
