    Sorry but while the model is beautiful, the 5 car is wrong. We never ran a coupe body on either car. When we were running the old Blue Flame six in the 49 bodies, we ran the two door sedan, not the coupe. The only coupe I remember running with us was the J-2. The truck is great! We had a chevy 283 in it. It pulled the 6 car on a trailer and the 5 car was towed with the wrecker.

    Ervin Carpenter
    This car was a team car to the #5 driven by Eddie Morgan. The cars were run out of Justus Pontiac-Buick in Rock Hill. This was during the early to mid sixties and I was one of the mechanics and builders of these cars. These cars (V8's) were run mostly at the old dirt track at Concord, NC. I believe we ran Concord on Saturday nights and different tracks around SC and NC on Fridays (but it has been a long time ago and I am not sure exactly which night Concord ran). Later, the car was driven by Harold Dunaway.

    Before Ervin started driving for us (Justus Pontiac-Buick) he drove this car as a team car to the #40 driven by Bryant Wallace. The cars were out of Charlotte, NC and we raced against them at the old Robinwood Speedway in Gastonia, NC. The two cars usually ran 1st and 3rd with us (#5 driven by Eddie Morgan) between. Due to this, the 5 car was called the bridesmaid.

    Don Arrants
    Don lived in Rock Hill, SC and ran a Shell station on Cherry Road. He raced all around the Rock Hill area until we started running overhead valve V/8's. Some of the tracks were Robinwood Speedway (Humpy Wheeler promoted) in Gastonis, NC, The Fairgrounds, Gastonia, NC, York-Clover tract between York and Clover, SC. This was really a beautiful car when Don first rolled it out.
