Default Re: Would anyone be able to tell me more about this car ??

To me it looks like what some clubs used to call a "1/2 midget". These were generally 1/4 midgets large enough for adults, the engine was in the tail, just like yours. A more common 3/4 midget has the engine up front like it's bigger brother the full midget. Since it has sophisticated suspension, torsion bars, shock absorbers, etc. but the engine in the tail, I'd say it's a "1/2 Midget". Also since the trailer has California plates, I'd contact the Western Racing Association in CA, they are a well organized vintage club they have a website, www.westernracing.com I think. I can't read the lettering on the hood, what does it say? interesting car.
