1950's Quater Midget Racer
Grants Pass, Oregon 97526

I have known Pete Kersten for over 37 years and his two boys, Jerry and Ed. Pete got his final black flag about 5 years ago, but I know the boys (grown men now) and Jerry and I got to talking about a year ago. He told me had a Quarter Midget Racer his dad gave him when he was 6, same as Ed got. Jerry’s favorite memory is sliding into a curb behind his dad’s shop and splitting his face open on the steering wheel and his dad’s nonchalant response to his busted nose and blood everywhere look. Fast forward 40 years and Jerry decided it is time. These Quarter Midget Cars normally had a Continental Engine, this one looks like a Briggs 5HP. Assume the worse as far as condition. Jerry does not know anything more about the Car, but hopes someone will recognize it and want to bring it back to life.
