Spotted this on Craig's List, figured this is about as good as any of the threads to post it.

Hey! THATS THE TRACTOR! This car i think was built by the Wesbys and eventually owned by Glen Hyort. Had many drivers in  it Randy Moser had some success driving it. If iam wrong jump in.

You are right on Chip.....Glen still has the car and the Brady that is selling the car is his son with Sherry I believe.

Ray Moore drove that with HUGE success at Skagit Speedway, man that brought tears to my eyes. Might make a great addition to WCVRA or even the local Ephrata Sprint Car class.

I think at one time Glen had thought about restoring the car. I'm sure his health has prevented that from happening. He has had that car for MANY years Kelly.

Wow, that's cool! I always wondered what happened to that car.  Any chance of it being restored someday?

The car is sitting minus engine but is all complete just rusting a bit here and there. I will restore it in the coming years as I would like to bring it out to Roseville for the West Capital reunion but not until next year

Rally, Mike & Gang-Sounds like you guys had a blast!! Rally & Mike, how did it feel to be back at Evergreen? Still 20 people in the stands? Rally you and Mike have hit it right on the nose on trying to keep cost low so the 'little family guy' can afford to keep racing. Remember when Sky Valley brought out the Jalopies for cheaper racing, Skagit had the Early Modifieds, and the Sportsman, Sky Valley on the asphalt had the Bombers? Hell you guys brought out 7 cars for a fun day at Evergreen with cars that haven't ran in years!, Skagit has barely 10 410 'sky is the limit cost' sprinters and Elma can only muster that in the midgets. It just seems like everyone wants an open wheel winged class, but how low can the cost be brought down? You can still have the sprint look with the wings, but could they go back to engine rules of Sky Valley of the 70's? I think the current top draw is Deming Speedway with a full field of mini sprints. Both fans and drivers that I have talked to say once the initial cost of the car is bought and you keep it in one piece, you can have fun all season! You guys got me on a role!!!!!!!!!

  you know our dads raced on a very small budget ..I dont remember if they ever won a race . all the racers were from monroe  the first few years ..then came  aurora speedways closer . racers from seattle showed up  faster more experienced  . my dad became the track annoncer ..  I helped in the  booth ..often our local  cars got out run  doug james kenny gardner   rebel jackson  started to show regularly   winnig quite often   .my hometown heros  .were reduced to also rans ..  the loren armstrongs and frank tucker and dale martels  couldnt keep up with the out of towners ..it was then I questioned my dad why dont uor guys win ?? he said   if you can keep the field level  .the show is much better  .he said if you had 20 guys on trikes  you could have a great race  ..but somebodys brother gave him a bicycle .well he shows up on the bike   and wins  the show stinks  but now everyone wants a bike .. we all want to be steve kinser  at the local level ..  with the economy as it is  lack of sponsership   and the fans to pay the purse you need to finance that quality of car..  the trick is car count  .. keep the field even ..  low cost  and family friendly   you will fill the stands  with spectators   cheaper cars require less  maintance. less payout the.. gate prices could be less  .. I anm sure lots of people dissagree with me  but I have run cars     had five out of my shop back in the skagit economy days  they were cheap to run  .and I am not sure that I had any more fun winning a race in a sprint car  then I did in those economy classes  that had 25 cars  at the track every nite  like we did at ephrata   we all moved up  to more expensive cars motors and equipment  but I question everyone   wasnt it just as much fun in the cheaper cars

It was a lot more fun, when you didn't have to rob a bank to be competitive. I also think that everyone was more willing to help & get along .

just scanned this for Mike & Rita at Ephrata for the upcoming Rebel Sr Memorial on 8/7 and thought I'd post it here. Some history here with the car, Rebel and Glen's famous push truck.

Wow Curt.. that car is still as cool looking today as the day that picture was taken at Spanaway. Here is something strange. I was at a friends house weekend of July 17th and his kid runs a latemodel at Wilamette and he has a frame similar to that outside the race shop. Tried to run it on dirt with out success. Asked him why and he said every time he lifted the left front he never knew which direction the car was going to go when it landed. Expensive experiment. I think that I have a picture of it and will post when I download.

The car still looks like that but is a little rusty from sitting since the first Al Pombo Classic at Hanford. Made me feel real good after Al got in it for the first time in years and had tears in his eyes then told me he really loved seeing it was the same as when he had it. I learned about the race a week before and the car was scattered between my Dad's house and our shop in Vacaville, I got it fired on Friday night at 2 am which the neighbors hated but racing comes first hehe. I got close to Al in those years as my uncle married Al's niece my aunt Barbara. That's how my dad ended up with the old "T" he found out Sonny Ball was selling it and bought it. It was in pretty bad shape after Sonny crashed it at Clovis.

I thank everyone for the pics as I have a few but still want more history of who drove it before Al.

Brings back a lot of memories, sounds like how I grew up at Capital and Roseville watching my dad and wishing I was old enough to get in the pits. They did finally let me cheat the system at 15 and I loved working in the pits and seeing and talking to all the other drivers. Mel Baker I have to give tons of credit when I got the chance to drive my dad's old super him and Wally his brother taught me a lot on how to drive the car.

I agree, I grew up at West Capital and Roseville and your right it was a lot of fun and everyone could afford to race on a small budget. When Capital closed we went sprint car racing and had fun but not as much as back in the old days.

I would have to go back and look at some of Gerry's stuff you guys.....it's a down tube chassis and I'm trying to remember the cars that Gerry drove. The last car that I remember him having was a car he bought from Art Bigiogni in California and last person I remember having that car was Kathie Veenstra in Idaho.......I think....lol. But now that I think of it.......it may have been the car before that. Let me look and if nothing else I'll call Gerry.
