Who Drove Inch Pincher?

July 11, 2014

Photos by Dean Kirsten
The original Empi Inch Pincher #1 was driven by Dean Lowry and of course Darrell Vittone. Lee Leighton perhaps also drove this famous '56 gasser at one time. Even Dan Gurney raced it. But yesterday, we met someone who claimed that he also drove the Inch Pincher, and had the photos to prove it! In a most revealing interview, we learn a whole new story about Darrell Vittone's former street car-turned-racer, one that will surprise even the most hard-core VW racing fan. In an up-coming issue, we will show you photos of this incredible story about perhaps the World's most famous VW race car of all times.
