You have to love the internet. If you look hard enough and know the right words to search for...you can find some great stuff. The other day I was reading the H.A.M.B. and I found this great comic about a wife that bought an Allard J2 so she could win a race to pay the mortgage on the family home, which of course was due to be foreclosed. Who knew that 60 years later the story would still be so relevant!
This story was printed in the comic book, "Hot Rods & Racing Cars" (Issue #10, 1951) and was penned by Dick Giordano, aka Richi Giordano.
