  1. Sadly I have not gotten a response to my two PM's.
  2. Top picture is one of my Uncle from the Speedway collection taken in 1931. The other three look like another replication of the "Golden Seal Special" car used in 1932 entered and driven by Juan A. Gaudino finishing 28th. The next year it was driven and entered by R. Riganti finished 14th. These fellows came out of South America, I beleive Argentina. On the Chrysler discussion board someone documented where the original one is and the two replicas. The only similarity between these two Chryslers is they both used the Imperial 8 and had to sleeve down the bore to meet Indy's 366 cubic inch limit. They both ended up with a bore of 3.375" for 358 cubic inches. I am suspecting that bore was used because some kind of piston (race or high performance) was available. Still have not recieved a reply to my two PM's. Maybe this is the car he talked about and maybe not? Hate to be this close to knowing and not find out for sure. R. C.
  3. You have an interesting and sad story. I was not aware that some of the car people are so cut throat. I am not a car guy so to speak, my interest is antique outboards especially racing motors and boats. So far I am not aware of this kind of thing happening in our group, but maybe it has happen. I am only interested in the fact if my Uncle's car still exists as posted, or maybe not. Of course I would like to buy it, but if the owner is not in that thinking, I can understand. However I am willing to share the letters and information I have. My interest is honest.
  4. To the code name "beemergb", I would like you to reply to my PM's about your friend who claims to own this car. As a family member with info of it we can discuss it. Please reply.
  5. Thanks for the info, I PM him last night and just waiting for a reply. There is only about 5 of us that are direct family members left and I probably know more about the car than any of them. My Uncle hated writing letters, but wrote me and there is information in those letters. Once he sold it in 1936 to someone in Ohio, it has been lost to us. If it truly still exists, I sure want to talk to the owner.
  6. I have posted on the Chrysler thread about information on this car started in 2010. I have much info on this car as George Howie was my Grand Uncle. Wish to talk with the code name "beemergb" who claims his friend owns this car. Please respond. R .C. Hawie at rch44f@icloud.com
  7. I have much information on George Howie's 1931 to 33 Indy car as I am his Grand Nephew. Hade and I have been conversing as I don't believe the car in Finland is my Uncle's. Mainly because we can't justify the time line. Besides my Uncle never went to Europe to race. As far as I know he sold the car in 1936 to someone in Ohio. I much would like to talk to "beemergb" for he claims a friend has my Uncle's car. Thanks, R. C. Hawie rch44f@icloud.com
