I ran across this picture from a 1951 Motor Trend magazine, kind of interesting to see some of the early history. The full page is also attached.

The car on the bottom right looks like a Crowley Super Sport. Lots of history in these pictures.

Yes it is a Crosley Hot Shot. As you can see it did win races! The article explained how the handicap worked. They actually completed more laps in their handicap than some of the faster cars. If you also look in the background you will see that is SCCA racing.

That would be a Crosley Souper Sport. The Crosley Hot Shot had Jeep like door openings with no doors but the same basic car as the Super Sport.
