Tom Malloy -- 1958 Lister-Jaguar "Knobbly"

Seven Listers were entered at the "Wine Country Classic" this year.  Five took the green flag for Sunday's race -- Malloy's very photogenic car wasn't among them.  This model of Lister was known as the "knobbly" because of the bulgy rough-hewn bodywork. 

Lister was an ironworks company, which was the source of much humor about the relative crudeness of their chassis designs.  One joke has it that since Lister built iron fencing, a section laid on its side became a car frame.  In an apocryphal story, Lance Reventlow was inspired to create the Scarab when he visited the Lister factory and was certain he could do better.
