  3. The lady on the Vette is not a trophy girl. That is Shirley so she was the winner.

    upload_2017-12-31_5-52-53.png Kenny Lindley/Don Hampton Miss Fire FED
    Hello,

    This scene was played our many times on the west coast, especially at Lions. Kenny Lindley’s Miss Fire FED driven by Don Hampton (of the Hampton blower fame) made the winner’s circle almost weekly in the late 50s and early 60s. The sleek white race car was one of our favorites racing at Lions Dragstrip.
    upload_2017-12-31_5-35-1.png Lions pits, fire up, staging lane...
    The Miss Fire FED was one of the first streamlined full body race cars. With the skinny wires in front to the big slicks in the rear, it was the finite point of racing design to go fast. Don Hampton drove many cars, but this Kenny Lindley’s Miss Fire race car was one of the best for the era.

    Finals: 1959 Detroit Nationals vs the Sidewinder.
    (Note: you drive almost 2400 x 2 miles and race in the finals against the same So Cal guy from the weekly events at Lions Dragstrip in Long Beach)

    For those that missed it the first time it was posted:

    The film clip shows Kenny Lindley/Don Hampton at Lions in early 1959. The Lindley/Hampton Miss Fire sound comes from the September 1959 Nationals. Same sound same race car.


    TURN IT UP !

    I'm with Story on that pic. I remember watching the Art Linkletter show on TV when growing up.
