James Jessup -- 1961
I'm sure some go-karts are larger than
this car. James Jessup of Seattle, WA, finished 26th in his 750cc.
"H-Bomb", a diminutive and crowd-pleasing Special powered by a Mercury
outboard boat engine.
How small is small? Compare Jessup's
ride with #540, Jack Reynolds' 1955
Porsche 356, hardly a Ford Galaxie itself.
|From website visitor Bruce Dabney:
"James Jessup's H-Bomb was originally
built & raced by Dan Odenborg (sp?) from McMinnville, Oregon.
He (along with at least one other guy who's name I forget) built at least
one other car, which I think is now being vintage raced, possibly by Odenborg's
son? "Sports Car Graphic" did an article on the car sometime in the
early 60s. Cool to see it's still around."

personal photo collection showing the
"H-Bomb" at Laguna Seca in 1962.
