Quite the all-star lineup for that concert, Joe.

There is enough steel in the bumper of that first car to make more than one Honda.

Would love to take a ride in that blue Chevy without the hood.

This is a picture from many years ago, at a car wash my youngest's karate class was having to raise money for their black belt graduation. Just happened to be during the Great Race and the History Channel car stopped in for a wash.

I'm wearing the "Weary Willie" sweatshirt.

The 4th car down was constructed by a man who named it a "Beerster " and drove it in the " Great Race".

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
