just being able to move my right shoulder after surgery for torn tendond
I found these in “Low’r” section, lower dresser draw, 😆
I think the picture of the flat head digger was when carmel ford still had it,
before we got it, large water pipes and 3×2’s on it, I took it at the car show in white plains
I think Patty Kramer had the short water pipe and 4×2’s set up
the ’55 if I remember from stories is Tiny Eglets,
the one he won the nationals with,
drizzl’n here now, 😥
guess marcus is out, 🙁
trying to do this on la-la meds, and 1/2 useage of arm 👿
thick shake right about now would go great,,, 🙄
Look close on Undecided..you’ll see its when Paul Grant had it
maybe Tiny can set the time when he got it.
was this the one Tiny had in the nyc car show,
when Rich Shotts had the fed there also????
Bob “Tiny” Eglet has an interesting story to tell about the time he went up to the property where the drag strip was, but long after it was closed down. There he found an abandoned Anglia Sedan that somebody must have ran in the Gas class. Tiny took it home.
The Anglia Sedan (A Prefect not an Anglia) WAS the Lil Ol Whinemaker Altered (Not a Gasser)of Bob LaRegina..Eglit found it,,,took it to LaRegina who did’nt want it….The Car is now for sale by the Whalen brothers, The FED Dragster At the New York show ( see NYC Show topic in Other photos -multi-media section)WAS the old Shottgun Express (The first one they built, that Eglit bought and re-named The Mindbender and showed it)…the Anglia At that show was Me and My brother Ted’s “Travel Agent” we had in Partnership with Joe Tanner(A former John Sachs Car) The 55 Undecided was not at that Show. There ….Straightened That All out ….If you search all these items …you’ll find All the details in the Forum someplace:
