This car is owned by Jon Stanbrough When Jon got the car it had a roll cage welded on it. Jon restored the car using the steering, rear end, drive-line, spindles, hubs, and the radiator. He pieced a fiberglass, hood, cowl, and a tail together and built the side panels and belly pans out of aluminum. The bumpers, rollbar, wishbones, grill, front axle, steering arms, oil tank, motor plates, dash, and every piece that he didn't have, he built in his fabrication shop.

The 1972 version of the John Zink Super. This is how it looks today at the Zink Ranch Museum.
Emmett Hahn drove this to the Tulsa Championship and 2nd in NCRA Points.
Denny Moore and Herschel Goodnight kept the Zink Super well prepared for Emmett's hard charging style towards the front every weekend.

My guess is this is the Zink Midget that Jackie Howerton ran with USAC in the very early 70's.

This is what the #24 looked like in the year 2001. Restored by Paul Martens of Fairview OK. Jerry Sullivan of Minnesota is the proud owner of this car now.
I believe it is probably restored to the 1975 version of the Performance Engineering #24, driven by Harold Leep, and owned by Warren (Jelly) Wilhelm. Jerry Stone and Jay Woodside also had very good runs with the #24.

Rick & Lynelle Nordquist's #48. They plan on running this with the IMCA Oldtimers Club and Northern Vintage Stockcar Ass.
