Tom Householder's Panorama
From Tom: "This is a Pano I constructed from the Savin family
DVD of the Bakersfield races held May 19-20 1956. This is the grid
for the final race on Sunday.
There's a little bit of everthing in this race. I believe
there are five Specials in this race. #70 is Max Balchowsky in one
of his Doretti-Buicks. Behind
Max is Carlyle Blackwell's orange
C-Type Jaguar. Is that the "Townsend
Typhoon" behind the Jag? The Powell Buford is #172.
Behind The Cad-Allard is an MG V8. A bit obscure is the "Double
Bubble" Prototype in front of Max! There are also three AH 100 cars,
one AH 100S, as well as an AH 100-4.
What you don't see here is John von Neumann in the Ferrari, or Ginther
and Miles in Porsche Spyders."
