I wish I could find both of these cars.  They were probably the best two cars my dad ever got to drive.  He is in the #19 car, which he won the 100 Chet Thompson Memorial race in, but it was the same car that used to be #94 where he won a lot of races, and before that Julian Castro drove it under the #4 and #12 for a couple of years, and it was owned by my dads brother Bob Kaiser!  The body was beat, but the car was fast, and handled good.  The #6 that Gene Dudley is driving, is my dads old blue #77 that he drove in 1966 and won more individual races than anyone else that year, including his first main event win.  Bob Crane must have sold the car to Dudley after Bob and my dad split up at the beginning of 1967.  If anyone knows the whereabouts of either car please let me know.
