Nice original helmet.
Danny on right with unidentified 'fan'.
Danny Smallin
was a fixture at
Midstate
Speedway, either
in a car or helping
running the
speedway, he was
always there and
always involved.
Very popular with
all that knew him,
his name is
synomomous with
the track. Danny
is on the right in
the photo left, his
cromewell is
displayed above.
Sharon was rightfully pleased.
Ken Myers has
done it again..this
model of the Jack
Johnson #37
Falcon was given
to Sharon

find any nicer
models made..and
they're all 'one off.'

Jeff,  Just wanted to thank you again for the pictures you forwarded of Ivan Little
and Geno Begelo. I flipped the pictures to my friend Gary Kendrick up in St.
Catharines and he used them to finish the Ivan Little tribute car he built in 1/8 th
scale as a present for Ivans birthday. Gary has now begun casting parts in resin in
1/8th scale, such as axles, buick brakes, quick changes, bodies, tires, wheels,
motors and has them available for model builders of all ages. I  have attached a
couple of links so you can see how great the coupe turned out.Just scroll through
and you can see how great a model this is. Thanks again, the pictures really
helped him finish the build. If anyone is interested in Gary's build, they can
contact him, he loves to give the details on the building process.

Some great pictures thought you might post in your model sections. It turned out
great and Gary indicated Ivan was really pleased with the build, your help with
the pictures was a great asset. Rick Beaubien
Ivan Little's #61 - what a nice model!
This model is so hot it melted all the snow around it!!

Ken Myers has come through again, just in time for
Christmas. His latest is the McCredy S33, driven (during this
era) by Don Hendenburg, made a great gift. Dad's collection
is growing too...
Sweet! Even has the door chains and a cracked windshield..
1937 Ford coupes make classic modifieds..
Fred Decarr was the mechanic on this car.
Bill smiles from a later version of the 33.

Since Dad has his '37 coupe I figured I'd better get one too
and Ken Myers delivered for me as well. This is a model of
the car I remember as a boy, and the one that got me hooked
on this sport, Willie Wusts #88 driven by Kurzon 'Moose' Cary.
Ken's attention to detail is really something, the pictures here don't do justice.
This was the last version of the car, with the door post cut out.
Willie always used Ford power..
And won quite a few at Midstate.

When we found this '34 Ford coupe in Pennsylvania a few
years back, it screamed 'Teardrop'. CAn't fit the real (replica)
in my living room so Ken Meyers helped me shrink one down..
The John Manny owned 'Teardrop', driven by Irish Joe Donahue..
and later, Don Diffendorf.
Ken is truly an artist, dual right rear.
Flathead, as always, is well detailed.
As is the rest of the model..

wilcox #32 for Myrtle carpenter and a don rounds 3101 for
