In regards to strength Vince Gironda had it way beyond his size.
Don Peters used to marvel at the weights Vince used in awkward movements and he’d bark at Don or Bill McArdle and say “Hey try this!” to bust their onions.
He also threw the hammer and tossed the caber besting guys twice his size in the highland games held in Ca.
The original HIT man Arthur Jones had the utmost respect for Vince and vice versa because they would tell each other they were full of shit face to face. Then the next day ask each others advice.
