|06/20/08||Jack Reinhard||That looks like one of Ed Ackermans cars from Long Island.
He had 2 cars- #1 and #2 which had the best of everything for the period. The number and crossed flags make me think it could be one of his cars. Al DeAngelo ran his #1 at Langhorne in 1964 so the cars weren't asphalt only. The O'Rourke's Kosher Deli may be a needle at Bob O'Rourke who had a steak house on LI and as I recall was pals with Ed. I believe Gil Hearne may have been involved with Ackerman and could be at the wheel, anyone in touch with Gil???

|06/28/08||Dwight Clock||Another driver of the Ackerman #2 was the great midget driver Johnny Coy. Coy drove the #2 to a feature win at East Windsor in 1965 in the second ever modified race ever run there.|
