NASH CAR CLUB of AMERICA
This is a picture of the youngest son (of
4), Grimes Holcomb Jr. hooking up his Rambler to head for the 1955 Darlington 500. He managed the shop. He is a member of the Nash Car Club.
.In 1954 Harford Nash Sales in Aberdeen Maryland purchased two new Rambler
2dr sdns and put them on the NASCAR short track circuit. Nash supplied
narrowed Ambassador rear ends for these cars. They were very successful
except when they ran tracks greater than 3/4 mile. Last year during
NASCAR's anniversary, in one of the old films they showed you could see one
of the Ramblers pass by. This was at the Darlington 500 in 1955. I have a
few pictures on disk. If you folks are interested maybe we could put them on
the web page somewhere. There are about 10 photos. If any of you remember
the sidebar article in the Mar 57 Motor Trend about the Rambler at Daytona
with the 327 engine that the editor drove, these are the same guys.
