Default Re: ENGLEWOOD SPEEDWAY 50s Jalopy Action

Jerry Lee these are great.

Fender hangin' . . . Door bangin' . . . Fun!

I keep watching for a photo of "Junior" (Garland) Boyes who ran #180x at Englewood, it was, I think the mid 50's. It was a white 35-36 Ford 5-window coupe, with red numbers and modest flaming on the sides.

Harry Lofgren ran a #18 35-36 Ford that looked similar, red over white without flames. When I find my photo I'll post it.

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...
