You got that right!! I would love to build about 4 cars, the Dotties 65, the 61 1080, the 62 #1 and the last car. The last car would be the easiest of all of them to build. 32 Ford coupe bodies even in fiberglass are expensive, steel is out of sight.

Johnny Mackison's car in the mid 50's...1956-'57? It was sponsored by Dotties Diner from York. I think the owners name was Bud Humer(sp)...

1080's picture of the two Emrich cars, is listed as the 1964 nat'l open race. If I remember correctly, I remember going to that race with my dad and was surprised to find out that the Emrich cars would not be there that day and Toby wasn't going to race. There was some sort of bankruptcy or sheriff lein and the cars were paddlock in the garage. I was ten at the time, so my recollections could be wrong. Could someone verify this.

Toby also built a light blue sidewinder #1 in the mid 60's which he drove some Sat. nights at Selinsgrove and Port. Don't believe he raced that car very much and later he sold it to a guy - I think named Joe Surnick, not sure of this name, but he raced it at Selinsgrove for awhile.

The dark blue #1 was the Indy roadster that Mario drove. My dad would take me to Toby's northside speed shop and we were there one night soon after Toby got the car. It was stripped down to the frame. I took some pictures because later when it was finished and Toby began racing it at Hershey, I built a model of the car and presented it to Toby at his shop. He told me to keep it because of all the work I put in. I wish I would have saved some of those early pictures and models I had built.

At the time I didn't know, but a year later Toby would move his speed shop just a few blocks from my house on the southside of Lebanon, and I became a regular at the shop, helping on his #17 modified and Lee Osborne sprinter and later went to work fulltime for Toby. He taught me more about fabricating, racing, and business than any other person I have know. I was always be grateful for the years I worked for him and raced against him. It's hard to believe it will be almost 35 years since his passing.

My Dad took the pics of the 1 and 1E and it was the Grove Open Competition 100.....Dickson winning the race. The 1E had the roof sheet metal removed from it.

Joe Surniak from Carlisle did buy the sidewinder number 1....

Emrich was absent from racing in 1963 and 1965-?....I don't remember an Emrich car until Paxton had the 1 in maybe 1968??

1080 or anyone else that may know.....where did Toby and Milford finish in the 64 Grove Nat't open race? I was at the 63 race which Johncock won and I have pictures of me standing next to Toby's Regester #6 car, which I think he finished 10th. After showing the picture of the Emrich cars to my dad.....he thinks those were pics were from one of day races that the Grove ran on Sunday afternoons leading up to the Grove nat'l. and he's still convinced that Toby didn't race the Emrich car in the 64 Nat'l race.????? My dad thiinks Emrich had financial troubles at the end of '64 and didn't get back into racing until a few years later. Now I'm not sure what to think...but just for peace of mind.....I would like to know for sure if Toby race that day or not, so if anyone has results from that "64 Grove Open race, I'd really like to know.
