    This is the Anderson Special that was based out of Kansas City, MO. It was driven by A.F. Scott and was entered in three races on the 1915 AAA championship trail. We are looking for more info about the make-up of the car, Scott and the owner.

    Stop by TheOldMotor.com to see enlargements of this interesting car along w/press articles that have been found.

    Or possibly Finland? The swastika has the "short legs" that seems more typical of that insignia.

    A casting for a movie or play - wanting people with actual experience. Most likely to be "real"-looking extras.

    IN fairness, it should be pointed out that LeMay fought hard for enlisted housing, 24 hour chow halls, dorms instead of open bay barracks - essential for 24 hour operations -, faster promotions, and my favorite ... base auto hobby shops, fully funded until 1985! A hard-ass, yes. But also a COMMANDER, not an administrator.

    I was going to post a current photo and then realized just how sad the 'then and now' comparison would be.

    If you watch the special features of the movie where the Director, Richard C. Sarafian narrates Vanishing Point (1971), he says they basically wrecked all the cars in the movie with the hard abuse and that near the end of filming they were taking parts off the other cars to keep the last one running.

    Another website says the same for the Vanishing Point (1971 movie) 1970 Challengers - no longer exist. Probably liability as well as the cars were on loan from Chrysler.

    By all means, if you have the DVD, watch the European version (it has both) and watch it with the directors commentary on. The European version includes the scenes with Charlotte Rampling which were cut from the US version.

    The Vanishing Point "Challenger" meets it's doom [The Loan Cars were probably returned to Chrysler ]
