One of the photos is of two women racing the midgets with one car getting a little air with a caption on the back of the photo that my dad wrote. Most of the cars they were running had hoped up model a engines in them. I dad told me a neet story about the time Gib Lilly called them and invited the cars from Yuma to a race in San Diego at Balboa stadium. Gib Lilly was having a ca
  9. Bob, Thanks for the reply on the George Conner Hunter Spl. car. I got to meet George before he passed away also. Attached is a photo of the letter he sent me telling me the history of my car when he drove the car. Hope you will be able to read it.
