    Probably a repost but here is a real triple - Doug Peterson photo.

    Boy, there is nothing like making a blunder like I did there, after I typed 1964 I did question it myself, partly because of the 65 GTO in that shot.
    It's (painfully) obvious how easy it is for someone to distort history simply by reposting pictures on the internet with blatantly wrong assumptions.
    I saw the 1964 date mentioned in the article and didn't catch that it was referring to when Swaja designed the car for Ivo.
    As to the clothing; yea, probably should have looked more like this huh!

    Here is a nod to our British drag racing counterparts.
    This is a really cool website for those interested in early drag racing history of the U.K.

    Quote from article about photo below.

    Look at our clothes. Can you imagine any 19-year olds nowadays, going to a HOT ROD show in slacks and sports jackets or suits?— this is 46 years ago.

    The blower on the car in the back looks small.
