They were really long , turned out near the top , ends were cut at an angle , and of course they were chromed .
The driver best known for driving the 409 is Lynn Cowen . I think Bill Clarke drove the car in its earlier years . Lynn also raced in the Pikes Peak Hillclimb . Lynn , i believe , worked at Charlie Russos' garage , which fielded several cars at the speedway .
I thought it was Lynn Cowen, you can just see a portion of the car in one of the
"555" pics.
