"My Guess: Jack Millikan driving George
Hollinger’s Lola T70."
(2-9-12) More from Jim Hawes:
"I got to thinking about George Hollinger
and some of his racing. I was in the Army when some of this took place,
but as I remember: George owned (?) the T-70 that Jack Millikan drove
at Laguna (maybe he was just the “Entrant”, I think it was an ex-Surtees
team car, but I am not sure of this).
He later bought a later model T-70 from
Dick Barbour (Automotion - San Diego)
drove George’s car at Riverside. They had the cars painted the same colors.
I believe George and Jack drove the cars
in Mexico City.
I’m not sure if George ended up buying
2 cars from Bill Young or the first car was from someone else, BUT George
ended up with one of the T-70’s (Bill Youngs?) that had one of the massive
sets of Weber 58mm Side Draft carbs sitting on a cross-ram manifold! Damn
that looked great.
The induction was too much (no low end,
but LOTS of top end!) and they switched to a set of 48mm IDA’s before Mexico.
A couple of years ago Dave Schneider
(Schneider Cams) called me and asked if I could identify a set of carbs
and manifold he found in his storage rafters. He described them, and I
had to laugh. I remembered most of the details on their history. I told
him he had found a gold mine! I think he gave them to his partner Jerry
for his street rod!
Not that any of this matters, but it
may help identify some of the Lola T-70 pictures you find."
