    There's one of those about twenty miles from me!

    Belongs to a fella by the name of Roy King, and boy-oh-boy does he push that thing along!
    He restores cars of that era for a living; they come to him from all over the world...last time I was down there he had a Fiat he was working on...was sent to him from Switzerland.
    Seems they have an odd-ball thread pitch; so he was lathing each individual nut and bolt.

    I met him one day on the Opunake Road in that car, coming the other way...and he would have been around the 80 mph mark.

    (Total brain fart; I cannot for the life of me think of the name/marque of that car!
    I'll remember it at 2:00 am tomorrow no doubt...man, I must be getting old!)

    I do the same thing! Cannot for the life of me remember something from yesterday but I have total recal from 20 years ago!

    The yellow car is a Stutz, I'd love to drive one for a couple hours at least once in my life! The oldest car I've driven is a 1919 Olds! What a blast!

    A friend is having a 1914 Overland Touring Car redone that's been in his family since new! He's not a mechanical guy, and he has the sense not to destroy parts that would be very difficult to replace by trying to "fix" things himself. It's just coming back together after being stripped of a terrible white paint job that his uncle applied long ago (the uncle must have been an ancestor of Earl Scheib - he painted everything including the brass!!), returning to the original black & green. I may have to see if I can finagle driving it around the block one of these days....

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    That is cool. If you've a chance, how about a pic? I cannot imagine a 1 owner car from 1914. Well, 1 family anyway. If you can't get behind the wheel, jump in the passenger seat at least.

    34-40 and others,
    You guys are great! It may be hard to find other speedster photos but thanks for trying. I am going to repost the picture of the red 1910 T Speedster here to add more interest. The yellow speedster above shows the style of the windshield much better but the red T speedster also had that type of windscreen although it is not clear in my photo. Now we know why drivers of that era wore goggles! I can add a new photo of two touring cars from the same pre-1915 meet and you can appreciate the comparison to the speedsters of the day. I did chat with an owner of a 1912 REO touring and he said he could barely get the 7-foot-tall car into his garage. Now you might have a better appreciation for the need to chop tops! Anyway I am looking forward to more funny car pictures as well, if they show the engine! The best we can do here is lots of local publicity for Danica this weekend for the last NASCAR race of the season before the Chase. Denny Hamlin is a very local driver, can he do it three times in a row? Hey Joe Gibbs did win three Superbowls! There should be some local publicity for the RIR event and believe me traffic really changes when there is a race at RIR and it is noticeable to us because I live only a mile or two from the track. I don't really want to limit the theme of this thread but pictures of older racers/rods are certainly welcome. I also like fenderless '29 roadsters but my wife says my car has to look like a real Model-A (with a 5" dropped axle?) so I guess we should invite any and all "Resto-Rods"

    Glad you like it Don! I haven't gone in search of any floppers with the engines showing yet...

    Jerry, thanks for those pics too! Can you imagine those little cars flyin' around Indy flat out? Must have been a rush!!!
