A few more for you guys....
Thanks to Dwight for inspiring me....

1. Who was the car owner?

2. Why was it nicknamed "The Jukebox"?

3. Who built the motors?

Lots of history with this car and I found out it has a connection with my Grandfather and the 7-11....:applause:

I really don't know who owned the car or who did the engines, but Tommy Washburn did drive it. I believe it was also driven by Mousey Kempster, Joe Konopka and maybe by Renaldo Herrera, also called Ronnie Herra!
