Thanks for bringing these slides up. YES, very big deal too me.
Early design Vette, not making any statements of fact on this topic, but Ben may have been a part of why Zora and Harley went racing.
VERY interested to know which tracks the vette's were at?
WE found, what look to be, Marilyn Monroe sitting in Bens Speedster>> BY CHANCE< JUST LIKE THIS !!!!!!!!
Long story with many details that seem to change history as written in many ways, have to be careful.
Few points :
Harley's son, Austin Healey I believe, raced at every track Ben officiated at, Harley and Zora delivered a special one off vette to ben out of the design studio, believe Harley and Zora were stock holders in Road America because of Ben,ey
they brought concept cars to the Inguinal race at Road America. Vette pit next to Arnolts pit, Michael Arnolt, Wacky's son, did send me pics, Ben at Sebring, staying in Wacky's Tower he owned
& reassured me Wacky was a stock holder in Road America, just like Ben, MUCH MORE.
Matter of fact, this surfaced yesterday; should be a good READ, AS BEN is on the front cover throwing the flag with his buddies going by at 130 mph>> Ben was nominated for this HONOR.
Have lined up persons to look at Gordon Buehrigs original manuscript at the ACD Museum, Bens Speedster was in it.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, i am very interested to find out what you un -earthed >>> one car guy to the next, thank you.
A writer would be nice, she will be working with hard docs and facts, no heresay or B/S.
BEN PICTURED INAUGURAL RACE TRACK OFFICIAL< WONDER WHY THAT WOULD BE ?????????????????????
