Whilst surfing for unusual race cars I found this...the McCandless 500

I wonder if it had anything to do with Cromie McCandless, he was a Northern Irish Grand Prix motorcycle road racer. His best season was in 1951, when he finished in third place in the 125cc world championship behind Carlo Ubbiali and Gianni Leoni. McCandless won two Grand Prix races during his career.
I've seen him a few times in the TT parade lap they used to do every year bringing out the famous old race bikes of the past, ridden by some famous past racers.

Dick Guldstrand at the wheel of the "Pam" Chevrolet........Riverside 1966,....the car did not make it through practice, and never raced again.

Interestingly, the "Pam" was produced as a clear plastic slot car body in 1/24 by Russkit and Select, and also in 1/32 (maker unknown)......I do have one of the 1/32 bodyshells.

Cheers
