Not sure on the car on the outside-looks like a 3x5 wing-could be 4x6.LPS did try one of Jims old 4x6 wings on the car one night at the Port-see my Jim Nace post, that was the wing on the car the night he flipped. We had a 5x5 on the lps car when I shot this pic.

Yes-You are right. I did not want to post till I looked at my other pics. Back in the 35mm days ya shot 3-7 rolls of film-to get 6 keepers :ahhh:
The wing on the car is a 4x6. The # on it is 6. This is the wing lps put on the car at the Port-that Jim flipped with.

I shot this of Jim with the same car(1982) he got his car out to run that night. The LPS car was not running the Grove that night. As you can see I was not very good with a flash :laughing7:
