For All You Old Northeast Modified Fans

The latest Old Bridge Speedway Reunion was held on Sunday… Some neat pictures:

  1. Elton Hildreth is still kicking around… Nice restoration of one of his old cars…
  2. Car that was driven by Charlie Lidmar - after sitting for 40 years!!
  3. Fan John Fillimon with a door from one of Bob Malzahn’s Modifieds…
  4. Neat restoration of one of the old XL-1 Mods driven by Joe Kelly…

Dave, do you have any pictures of Buzzie, Will Cagle, or Pete Corey from the old modified days in the Northeast ?

There are some of Buzzie and Will on my web site www.floridaracinghistory.com

Thanks Dave

I love the pic of the old man and the #69 car… :slight_smile: Thanks for sharing…

Thanks Frasson, Pete was the man, absolutely fearless. Buzzie told me once that there was a race that required pitting for fuel (not sure where) but Pete showed up with a 55 gallon drum for a gas tank, he never had to pit and won the race.

a few more pic’s of Pete Corey

Those old Studebakers made such good looking racecars… Remember when automobiles had real style and personality?

And the stude v8 with 12.5 to 1 pistons added,porting and headers that split center ex ports ,run super well,had a better/stronger v8crank then anything early 50’s
