Ike Iacono in his Jimmy-6 dragster sitting at the almost unrecognizable Pomona Fairgrounds drag strip, from July 1958. Notice the unusual multi-piece steering linkage hooked to the Franklin steering box. Also note how clean and tidy the rail is. Iacono was interested in safety way before racing organizations started requiring things like scatter shields and chrome-moly roll bars, all of which can be seen here.

The LA Roadster Show at the Pomona Fairgrounds was a big success this weekend for Factory Five as our booth say a ton of traffic. The booth was manned by Factory Five customer Erik Hansen who reports that there were many interested show attendees stopping by and commenting on how they loved the idea of a classic 30′s Hot Rod that could actually handle and be taken to the track.
