Here are some photos of the before and after of the John Homa car #16A.The first photo is of the car when built.The after photos are from a big time crash that happen in Aug,1955 at Nazareth.The driver was Dave Rapp.I had a chance to talk to Dave a number of years ago at the Phillipsburg Mall race car show.Dave said he didn't get hurt,but he had a hard time getting out of the car because his helmet got stuck in the roll bars.In the last photo take a close look and i believe you'll see Jackie McLaughlin looking at the car.I put a small 3Wide marked on the front of his t-shirt.I have the photos.

Looks like they at least knew how to mount the "fuel cell".

Not a very good job on the roll bars, they went with the body

Thank you very much, Joe, for these great photos! The date was 8/7/55, and Jackie won the feature that night (after he put on his checkered "lucky" shirt, of course).
