Here is my question for the Englewood historians, The above #6 blue coupe with a cut down Ford Model A body. Did Joe ever run the #6 with a full size Ford Model A body, or did it begin life as a cut down.


I liked Joe's #6 well enough to build one of my slot cars that I raced in the 60's in to a Joe Lehman #6, it was built with a Monogram model kit 1930 Ford model A coupe body, I cut it down like Joe's car and painted it blue, in the cowl I put a grain-of-wheat (HO scale) red light bulb, I saw that Joe had one in His 1:1 car so naturally so did my modified slot car, that you can see closely in the cowl.

LAKESIDE - Late at night by the old Lakeside Speedway, you can hear the ghosts - The barking, crackling "Flathead Fords", the zinging "Chevy Stove Bolt's", The rumbling of the "KK-Offy's", and the snarling "Ford V8-60's". Listen and faintly hear the announcer say, "Ladies and gentlemen, the line up for the trophy dash," and the place would erupt with the mix echoes of cheers and boo's...Remember...
