    Not the best photo, but it does show a Dodge Red Ram.

  2. Hi, I am looking for the person who purchased the Larry Sullivan race car photographic collection. Am being told it was sold to someone in Penn. Thanks, Don.

    Quick update on my Sprint Car #27. Got the OHV banger motor built by Al Clarke of Go Devil Garage in New York and got that chassis fixed up by Jim at Rays Hot Rods. First time driving the car (besides in Jim's backyard) was in the streets and on the beach at the Race of Gentlemen in Wildwood, NJ. Car ran real strong and won the banger class. Still have some tuning to do and hope to find a little more power but man, what a fun car to drive! Trailer.JPG Sunrise.JPG trog.JPG Beach.JPG beach2.JPG beacha.JPG

  8. Looking for photos and info on sprint cars at Eldora from 1954,55 and 1956. Being told this collection may lead me to history I am tracking for my friend. A racing historian thought the collection went to a group in Penn. Appreciate your input!!

    To bad all the sprinters and champ cars aren't here on this thread and no on the antiquated one....better here.
     
  12. Yes, trying to link up a friend who raced underage in Ohio with his past!! Very long struggle but keeping at it for him and appreciate all the help all of you are contributing to get this mystery solved. Medical issues prevent him from recalling details. When we talk about the old days and race cars he lights right up! You can imagine that big smile I see when I find any shreds of info for him. That is my payment which I get a kick out of and also securing historical data! Thanks to all again for your help!!
