    "SUMAR" Special, 1955....


    According to legend the fully enclosed cockpit spooked whoever drove it......so it qualified "naked" in '55.....

    This thing was waaaaay outside the box! 1964 Smokey Yunick took L-side weight bias to the extreme.....

    (notice the less than inspired expression on driver Bobby Johns.)








    Mercifully, Johns backed it into the wall and put paid to the experiment!

    Thanks for all those, plenty of memories come back - including my first visit to Indy in '58. The sounds were very different from the mid 60's and into the 70's.
