Dave Schleppi -- 1961 Chenowth "San Diego Steel Products Special"

Schleppi, of Batavia, OH, in his beautifully-crafted car, leads Buzz Calkins in Phil Reilly's Kurtis 500G.

Note intake horns, unusual for a roadster;  they indicate this car's 4637cc. (283cid) Chevy V8 power.   When it was fired up in the pits, this car was LOUD.
