Pictures of Crosley Hotshot/Fibersport

These are pictures of the H-Mod I purchased from Mike S in IA. (http://crosleyfibersport.blogspot.com/)  It appears to be one of the Mays family Fibersports “factory” cars. Sandi F. (John Mays daughter)agreed based on the fact of the 1 1/2″ holes drilled throughout the Hotshot frame.

“Sure does look like Fibersports – and I  would think I have more than one of the photos that are similar or the same.  But the clincher is the chassis that has holes in it.  There is a family joke where someone (?) left a small child’s colander with a card attached that read:   John Mays – First Place for hole drilling above and beyond the call of duty!  

Appears to have had the nose and boot bobbed, maybe due to damage? But if if you put side to side with the SIAM, the middle section is identical.

Work on this car is behind the SIAM. I am looking for additional pictures, race history or? Also looking for a Fibersport flatsided mold to put this car back the way I believe it belonged.
