I am from Embro Ontario, hometown of Bob Hayward.  March 15-24 2024 Thistle Theatre, in Embro, is putting on Miss Supertest - The Bob Hayward Story.  We are looking for pictures of Bob and his Chevy called Rickshaw.

  Any other pictures of Bob would also be of interest.

Thank you.

Sue

Bob Hayward and Miss Supertest are very well documented as to their exploits in Prince Edward County. Don't know about Rickshaw, but I'm sure the play would be eagerly accepted if performed here.

HI SUE : An extensive story of Bob Hayward ( Rickshaw days )was printed in " Old Autos " - Written by fellows from Kitchener area ( Brian Campbell ) - Why not talk to Scott Hayward ( nephew ) right on the Hayward homestead - Lots of info has been written -- Don / Fleet 51

i believe 'Rickshaw' was a 6 cyl. dragster driven by Bob. I believe he competed in the 1959 and / or 1960 NHRA Nationals held in Detroit. Im not sure if he owned the car or was just the driver. Pictures do exist but i do not have any. Hope this helps .

Bob Hayward's " Rickshaw " was covered in 3 or 4 issues of Inliners International's " 12 P0RT NEWS " - Again check with Scott (or Mark ) Hayward right on the family homestead , just outside Embro -- Don / Fleet 51
