The person standing is my dad. I been told this is my grandfathers (RIP 1963) race car. The house is my grandfathers. I also been told he raced the car at the old Petersburg fair grounds track and at the old track in Dinwiddie. My grand fathers name was Ernest.W.Poole who worked at Brown and Williamson Tobbacco Company in Petersburg. Any information about the car (what kind) and my grandfather would be greatly appreciated.
