Cork clutch plate for the oil-bath clutch on our Hudson Hornet powered race car, along with a vintage can of Permatex clutch fluid for Hudson cars! The metal disk is full of holes, and the corks, which look like wine corks, are pressed through and then shaved flat with a razor blade. The fluid lubricates the cork and prevents it from crumbling, tearing, or burning up. Futuristic 1950's technology! (Still in use in large commercial equipment like forklifts)

My Father, John Alden Carlson, keeping me company in the shop, while brushing up on 1952 Hudson service procedures...
Superlatives would fall dreadfully short, so I'll simply say, the Best Man I have ever known!
I have given up on living long enough to comprehend all the life lessons and wisdom he has offered me over the years...I simply revel in his continued quiet solid presence in my life...
Love You Dad!

Our club, The Barnstormers Vintage Speed Club,
decided that we wanted to build something "different" for TROG this year. When we got our hands on an early Hudson Hornet engine, and @yeoleghost announced a rail dragster class, we knew we were onto something fun!
Our car, "The White Triangle", takes its name from the logo of the Hudson Motor Car Co. which was an inverted White Triangle.
Our race number "7X" was the code to order a crate engine from the factory "Severe Duty" department. Smart folks like Smokey Yunick knew that if you wanted to win in stock car racing in the early 1950's, you needed a Hudson 7X engine!
We have a handful of these pennants, made by @oxfordpennant to celebrate our fun on the beach. We'd be honored to share one with you for $20 shipped. PayPal to CrazyUncleHarry(at)gmail.com

Finally ticked off a bucket-list item by racing my car against a motorcycle at #trog (photo credit AI Kim)

The starter on our dragster is kicked off by this war surplus two-button switch. In it's original use, pressing these two buttons simultaneously would have detonated an explosive charge inside an airplane's radio, destroying it, and preventing it from falling into enemy hands!

Clearly our little race car doesn't begin to capture the beauty of our engine donor...
But at less than half the weight, the performance is definitely in keeping with the Hudson racing traditions! (Picture of stunning 51 Hudson Hornet courtesy of @oldcrowspeedshop & Pixar)

The original car had long departed for that junkyard in the sky. And our engine was living in a 46 Hudson coupe prior to its rebuild and return to a life of racing)

I'm honored to have found new brothers this late in my life...

And the most important thank you goes out to Mrs CrazyUncleHarry! I couldn't do any of this without her support and understanding.
She was finally able to get away from the responsibilities at home and join me in Wildwood for TROG this year! Huzzah!
