    Round Two…

    Against Bobby lagana’s infamous Plymouth Coupe…

    I can tell you that this had to be in late season 1964 or early in ’65 because that’s when Bobby gave it that red paint job just before taking it to Indy where he got blown away by a Willy’s.

    OK here’s what I have; Kenny Hayn is alive and living in Belleview Fla. (Kenny if you read this sign on) He owned the 56 Chev conv. seen in pictures and raced at Dover. I rode up from Elmhurst NY in the car one Sunday as it was flat towed. He sold the car to some guy(s) that had a station in Stamford Ct. when sold it had a tilt front end redish plexi windows and a 38 Ply front I beam. At the same time he built a 39 Willys PU (this gets interesting) it had a 41 glass nose on it and a custom SHORT bed, exactly like CyVs. Now I know he bought it from Kevin Dunn, could this be the same car. I have spoken to Kenny (its Ken now) and told him about the site, maybe the guys from Fla. can light a fire under him. Does anyone from stamford remember. Just a little of track PBS has a program called “History Detective” its pretty cool. A little like what we are doing here. Brian M was here today we had a good talk and I showed him a bunch of EDN stuff.

    patina…..Some time ago you asked if Kenny and I raced each other. I didn’t remember back than but from the DVD I found this picture. The 55 is before it was painted, still the original gray with some body work started.

    patina…..I was looking at the three pictures of Kenny’s car racing the Studebaker, Lagana’s Plymouth and the race with my ’55 Chevy. It looks like all three pictures could have been taken on the same day. There is a green pickup truck in the background of all three pictures that looks like the same truck.
    Not sure where all three pictures came from but might be the same photographer. You never know what you will see in this neat collection of pictures from the Dover site.

    I see Billy Lagana’s “Locomotion II” Z-11 in the staging lanes. From the looks of the surrounding trees, this must be late winter or early spring time.

    I saw that 1963 Chevy in a garage in Florida back in the 1990s. Luckily I had my camera that day!
