    Was wondering if the Lil Giant altered is the same vehicle
    now named Why Not, and still with the Sequin family.
    Son A.J. races it in NETO, mom and the second gereration pit crew members are also with him. A.J. has not been racing for the last season because of medical reasons. Just wondering I keep forgetting to ask A.J. when I see him. I’m sure he’ll have the car and crew at the reunion, was there last year and had a good time. Please don’t be hard on me with answers getting OLD you know…….

    thanks, bobby schlegel

    I found A.J. pictures of his 1949 Crosley Why Not in my NETO photo file
    Why Not in these pictures have rear side windows,
    Little Giant looks like a panel delivery. Hope the 2 pictures come through OK.

    Somebody told me once that Brazee’s origional “Little Giant” was actually a fiberglass repro body and not Detroit iron. Anybody know that for sure. Charlie Sablis has the low down on all that and he could give us a definate identification. Could somebody contact him…?

    Just looks like abandoned “stocker”‘…. Rust bucket with possible potential, if rockers not gone from ground moisture. Video Bob??? – any plans by young Breeze’s and Ziggy Sabis to ever build a “Recreation”?. Saw George’s nephew on a photo site by Googling ‘Little Giant” ,saying something way back. Gotta dig deep in the search return pages .

    Definetly an abondoned old stocker there, but could be enough left to build a Crosley “in the spirit of they who have” already done it!

    The Little Giant is what started my love of altereds. It was the first one I ever saw that almost always made clean, fast passes. It was tight. If no one else does it, I may have to build a recreation after I’m done with my Speed Sport copy. I wouldn’ t have a chevy in it though (or in anything else!) 😆 Maybe a screaming 273 on injection.
