It’s funny sometimes how a forum thread can stir up a whole bunch of real world details! One of the forum members over at The Jalopy Journal‘s H.A.M.B. found a Yeakel Bros license plate frame and asked about it’s history. The next thing you know, up pops Fred Yeakel with some real history and a great Cheetah website.
In the picture above, in addition to 2 Cheetahs, we can see the Cobra race hauler and a Corvette Grand Sport! This shot was taken at the first USRRC in Augusta, Georgia.
It’s a funny thing, with all the oddball 60’s era sports racers I’ve seen at Mosport and The Glen over the years, I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen a Cheetah in person. Maybe Fred and Gary Faules can share a trailer and head up here for the VARAC Festival next summer.
