|harposrepair||Looking at the style of the grill it looks like a Ford Transit. I'd hate to guess what year since I've never seen one with a locking hood like that before. Fords newer than a '57 are not my cup of tea.|

Read up on Junior Johnson, Smokey Yunick and the guys that started NASCAR. The revenuers went to the same shops for "soup-ups" as the moonshiners did. Whether the mechanic put the same stuff in everyone's engines is debatable. Read Smokey's book. Fun reading.

|wretched ratchet||I do remember seeing an awful lot of carb throats on that '50 and I know mine did NOT have that many when I was in College I guess the "Shiners" not only cheated the Gooberment out of tax revenue (only reason to control it) but wasn't it cheating to have a souped up engine when ?they didn't have one? - - maybe the Goober Garage didn't know how.|

|496CHEVY3100||Possible the ford was faster because it was supercharged ,( read article above ) also the reason not many shine cars were wrecked they belonged to the REAL local shiners hired for the filming they had to keep their cars with little damage as possible|

Yes James was his oldest son. John Mitchum was his brother. John and his wife Bonny lived about ten miles from me and I use to see him on occasion. John worked in about thirty movies. Quite a character.

Hope this isn't too far off topic to go here but I didn't want to start a new thread just for this. (fingers crossed)
Was watching "Thunder Road" for the 100K time it seemed but this time I paid attention to the credits and learned that, not only did Robert Mitchum star in it but he also produced the film, co-wrote the screenplay, and is rumored to have directed much of the film himself. He also co-wrote along with Don Raye, the theme song "The Ballad of Thunder Road". He did not sing the Movie soundtrack but did record it later.
Daggone, all of a sudden I feel so knowledgeable for some reason
