Race car #3 on the wall behind the tool bench.
These old pictures are so cool! There is so much history in them. It's nice to see them posted, I hope the younger generations see them for what they represent, an era that is very important to our history. Dave
John you are right about that drawing on the wall! I didn't pick up on that.
It would be interesting to zoom in on the work bench and that drawing to see more details.
I do like how the No Credit sign is framed in the car window.
Fred Hoss had a shop up to about a dozen years ago in Hawthorne rebuilding and modifying engines. I think he did most of the engines for the SoCalif T Club, which does very long tours.
When I contacted him about doing an engine, he refused, saying he was 85 and had a lifetime of work ahead. He would shorten an A crank by heating the rear and squishing it in a press. Dunno if anybody else has done that.
I was never to his shop, but wonder if that could be the same one? Kim, Larry, what do you know about it?
