    You're welcome indyrjc. Sorry it took so long for me to get around to posting it, or for that matter, posting this reply. In an odd coincidence, the photo is looking toward where Autobooks second (or was it third?) location was.

    Hi Tommy, just an aside here - the Carmen-McGee-roadster driven by Carmen's favorite cut-down driver Eddie Hoyle sold at auction for 100K at Las Vegas in 2011- Jimmy was there to witness the sale. 4 photos of the car with description and two photos of the Carmen-Doody cut down duo from late 50s at Norwood Arena. I don't believe the roadster ever qualified for a race. (I noticed your address - were you friends with Tommy Caruso? I belonged to Bay State Midget Old Timers until everyone got too old to do anything) lol

    One more PS I inadvertently met McGee several years ago out here in the desert, he winter's just a few blocks away - gave him this photo from Ron Bernaski - McGee's first race car mechanic job https://www.flickr.com/photos/91981316@N06/16023102291/in/album-72157632911694050/

    Very cool Tommy!
    I'll send you a PM tomorrow, with my email address etc, I think the last time we spoke I was with the Shuman's in the oilfields at Bakersfield and son Ronnie had just won Turkey Night. (Good grief, that's 23 years ago)
