1958 Speedster @ Put-in-Bay Raceway

Donna Dreher heading to the Put-in-Bay race-way with an exquisite 1958 Speedster.

1958 Speedster

Her father, Don Dreher, purchased the '58 Speedster from Michigan SCCA racers Jack and Rusty Fitts of Dearborn, MI in 1961. He raced the car at many of the local Midwest/Eastern US tracks-Mid-Ohio, Watkins Glen, Road America, Indianapolis Raceway Park, et cetera. 


The Speedster was raced until 1967 when the SCCA changed the rules governing the height of roll bars for E-Production. Her father apparently had no intention of altering the roll bar (the alterations would not have allowed the Speedster top to accommodate the roll bar in its secured position).
