Is it true that Rudy Helds Gold Gambler Prefect was the original Hurst Gasser Passer that Ohio George Montgomery raced ?


I can find out for you, his brother Rich and nephew Ron are just around the corner from my place.

 Believe it or not I saw this Colt leave the line and the rear slicks quivered in the air.  It must have leaned way back on the wheelie bars till the rear tires came off of the ground.

Sweet pit crew!! Lol Like the twin 292 engined dragster,, Kay Sissel, met him at the nationals spent half a day with him cruisin the pits. Super guy!!
Sadly we lost him way too early.
Introduced me to a friend of his running his heads, It was an odd one, 63 Chevy2, set up to run a 292 Chev engine, plus a 300 Ford 6. (The engines were switched there.) One engine was used in qualifying if i remember right.
At that time Sissel was running his altered.

  The track in Pomona is on the corner of the LA Fairgronds (now called the Fairplex) Behind the tarp was the street.  It was the same on the right side of the strip all the way down past the finish line when I was there.  The fence was also a great place for signage 

 The building in the pic that is over the Valvoline Banner is on the other side of the road.

I've got 2 of these fastback barges, but they certainly don't look like the fine example pictured!

Yes! The late Willie Borsch. That guy put on a real show!! Cool to see a clone of that car still owned by Mousie Marcellus and now driven by a younger Mike Boyd.
The story is that Willies ashes are in the new car, -so Willies still ridin along.
(The biography of the winged express and Willie and Mousie is a great read if you look it up.)
Good pic of the Highlander car.

That isn't willie, that is the clone car with Mike Boyd driving now for Mousie.
Re: The one arm driving,, Willie and Mousie eventually went to a funny car due to the match race shows drawing bigger crowds with those cars.
Apparently the funny car did have a fake arm on it, but the altered was the real arm.

I saw Willie with the fake arm on his big block chevy powered funny car.  I was surprised to see it was a chev engine between the frame rails.

Noticed in this last pic, the slicks are in wrappers, but still subject to the heat of the sun.
Great pic and nice Camero. Sweet Camero in Pic #1 of this group. Notice the big old 61?? Pontiac ambulance in the background.

Sweet bunch of pics!! Stricklers Corvette that he hated, claimed it was an evil handling car no matter what, and ended up cutting it up, before someone was killed in it.

(Someone got carried away with the orange spray bomb on Chilly Willy, - Even the ladies boots are orange!! Lol)

Nice pic of FJ Smith!!

 Sometimes the 6 cylinder engines didn't cut the mustard.

Then sometimes the V/8s didn't last.

Wining 

Then a new car.

Then the new car breaks after hard braking in the lights.
