wow awesome pic. 1972 I was only 2yrs old, love to see those old pictures so thanks for posting, and thanks to all the photographers that take the time and effort to post them on here. I have a question about the picture. That Fuel cell is huge, what size where they back then? and did they have longer races back then ?(more the 50laps races). Thanks for the help and answer to my question.
Jeff

Sprint Car Restoration - I owe so much to Marlin Heller, Lynn Paxton, and Jim Strausbaugh. I want to thank EMMR Museum for their amazing photo gallery. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see my Dad win so many races within such a short period of time in Central, PA. Words cannot describe how I'm going to feel when the car starts with my Dad sitting in the seat at Williamsgrove/Selinsgrove. The previous video attached is not complete or in order and will be edited when the car is fininshed. My brother and I want to restore the #35 Hawthorne Special from 1967-68. Thank you to everyone who has been involved and those who have been following my posts. I owe all of my mechanical abilities and knowledge to my father. He and I talk frequently about the car.
