|Ol' Yallers at VARA Tech -- 2003
VARA held it's annual tech inspection & racing car display at
Irwindale Speedway on 1-11-03.
|Your webmaster behind the wheel of Mike
Larkin's Ol' Yaller I.
Amazing how little legroom there is in the cramped cockpit.
Hard to imagine Eric Hauser, a taller man than myself, being able to drive this car.
|It looks like Max Balchowsky's
creations have achieved automotive immortality.
Many of the cars which will compete at VARA events this year were on display.
|Ol' Yaller III is now owned by the Petersen
Museum in Los Angeles.
Mike Larkin took Ol' Yaller I to the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. It looks like Mike turned down $31,000 for the car.
(The results page is down. If you have the patience to navigate the B & J site look for: "1954 Morgensen Special".)
