Didn't Sammy Hale, drive the "Cow Palace Shell" for a while ?
" Starving Marvin "
Carroll Shelby on right.
Street roadster class.
A super turd ? A waste of a rare Plymouth Fury body.
An east coast car.
The early days in New York.
He looks like a young Kirk Douglas.
At the front of rail is that Little John Buttera, might be too tall though.
Definitely not L'il John.
That Plymouth was not rare, nor valuable, in the 1970s when the modifications were likely done. It was just another unpopular old car that no one wanted.
I don't see anything done there that couldn't be undone, if it was still around now, and someone wanted to save it.
To assume it was a car in good condition based on that picture is a pretty big jump in speculation, given the history of the rust issues of that era Plymouth.
It drives me crazy when people apply the current value of these old cars to what was really going on 50 years ago.
Tough to get the shorts off for laundry day
Is that "Farball" with Smokey ?
I think so
A good caption would be "Where there is Smoke, there's Fire"!
