The front licence plate area on Makara's Aspen says "Rod Shop". If they built that car it would be very slick. They built some of Dick Landy's A-Body drag cars in about '73 or so and they were something else. Come to think of it those cars had some severe nose droop like this one does too.  ;D

Jerry Makara in the nicest Dodge Aspen you have ever seen . Here  he is in the 1982 Mid-Ohio Kelly American Challenge . I think this was a Peerless Manufacturing car


Pine, Although mine turned like a dragster, i think it was definately easier to look at then this thing! lol

 Dodgeguy i never really looked at your car too closely until you sold it to its present owner . It is a nicely built car although a little dated . Looking at the front end i saw a few things that could have been done to take some of the dump truck push it must of had , out of it . Admittedly some of the improvements would have been fudging the rules a bit , but that should never impede a real racer   ;) .

 The pic of Makaras car really doesn't do it justice but believe me when i tell you it was immaculate .

Pinecrest Do you have any more pics of the CNE or Pinecrest my dad raced at them back in the day and we only have a couple of pics. His # was 91 and his name is Julius Kovacs. The nicest looking car he ran was a 57 Chev sposored by Thompson sheet metal and worked on by  John Stephenson and R. Armstrong. They were all Brantford area guys. I think they called it a class C supermodified but it basically looks like a late model. Any pics or info would be appreciated.

Rod, I remember very well the Cutlass that Randy drove - thought it was an odd car to be racing but hey, he made it work from what I recall. Excellent job on the model I must say too. Maybe you should be sending the pics of it to Ryan Hunsinger so he can show his uncle them, I'm sure he would love to see them. I think I sent him my pics of the Mustang to forward on to Randy, not sure so next time I'm at Ohsweken I will show Ryan the original pics.

I used to have a pic or 2 of Paul Hebert from Shediac N.B. who ran for years at Riverglade & Petty Speedways outside Moncton in his Dodge Duster & in a Chrysler LeBaron in later years - I have program scans of the LeBaron I believe, just have to check through my pics is all. A few of the drivers down that way raced nothing but Dodges for years such as Paul & Jim MacPherson - again, I'll have to go through my pics (scanned & unscanned ones) & see if I have any of them. I'm pretty sure I have program scans, just have to take the time to look for them.

Most of the pics I have on my photobucket site are from recent years as I haven't scanned a lot in a while due to spending time at the track taking pics - too much to do & so little time to spare these days! LOL!!

Cheers!
Ernie

i remember Mcllroy at Sauble. Always cheered for him 'cause we loved that mustang . I was at a big race at Sauble as a small kid where it was standing room only and there was no wall on the far end of the track, just a bank. People were standing up there past the end of the fence on turn 1 and some got ran over, can't remember if any were killed, but it was bad. It seemed like forever for an ambulance to come from Owen Sound. After that, they wouldn't start without an ambulance present.

2 other names i remember were Danny Kotiuk who always seemed to be "dirt tracking" it and Merv Keller (killed racing snowmobiles i think). Also Jim Lipskie. Was he maybe the announcer?

I would love to see pics of cars from the Model T and Jackpot speedways in Williamsford. I seem to remember a slant six valiant winning lots of races there. I think I was 7 or 8 when they closed down but have never seen any photos from there
