Re: Gilmer 1/4 scale V8/60

That is incredible, Bob. He even has some of the chrome on the header pipe turning Blue! What a craftsman.

Re: Tattersalls Midgets

Yes it was the same car. Originally it had been purchased from Howard Linne, hence the "L" and the Black paint.

The car is now restored by Kerry Horan and is magnificent.

Re: Tatterall's Midgets

I was too young and it was before my time, but Bob had a lot of success with V860's. He drove the Paveese Ford "Offy Killer" and actually beat the Offies at Terre Haute Indianna in 1955. That car was...

Re: Tatterall's Midgets

Bill was sure an impressive driver. Probably one of Australia's best ever. I remember seeing him run Alec Rowe's supercharged Peugot a few times and marveled at how quick he was. Even when he came to...

Re: USAC: Jimmy Davies & Larry Rice

The Davies Offy was Pearl. It was very light. He had drilled holes in every part on it. I remember that when most cars had an intricate firewall he just had a simple 1/16th aluminum firewall off the...

Re: Vintage midget display in Sydney Australia

It is the "sister" car also built by Walt Reiff, with a Falcon. I guess there was half dozen of them built in Sacramento. Apparently they ran great on pavement. Gary Peers owns it and the Land car....

Re: 1960's midget

Hi Bob,

That is a rare photo of one of the last times 13 ran. Can you email me a copy of that photo please? I was not able to copy it. Phil's Chev Belair is in the background.

Re: Video from Ascot Speedway

Really good footage. When I hear Bob Seager I think of Gary Patterson who used to get around there pretty decent in a sprint car or midget.
