"Italiano" Buick powered.
" 'The Italiano' a mid-60's US drag bike powered by the 215 cube Buick V8, made of aluminium. Built by Joe Teresi and Mel Blair."
Who is he? And , whats he got a violent temper?
The guys in the photo:
Standing is Mil Blair. Crouched working on the motor is Joe Teresi.
Mil was one of the early v-twin Bonneville guys - Joe Teresi - well just look up Easy Rider mag.
Both worked on the Pegasus EFI system for Harleys.
Teresi & Blair also built this rig:
Fred Hartley at Atco. I always felt sorry for the folks who lived in that house on Jackson road. The races ran past midnight on some Sundays.
When the front has the big windows like that I've heard them called "Park Models" I assume for trailer parks not camping
That camping trailer was built by a company called "Harry and David", I guess they made handcrafted fruit baskets then decided to build trailers in the early 60s. That model was called the "Holiday House" , super collectable and every time I see one come up for sale it's way out of my budget. In '62 their plant burnt to the ground along with all the records. Someone estimated less than 200 trailers built.
Harry and David still sells fruit & chocolate baskets & boxes and are right up the road about 2 miles from my house. Right next to Tucker Sno-Cat.

Yup. I didn't mean to leave that out. Think the backspace button took out a line.
Look at the dude right behind the car pushing...photoshopped?
Sure looks like it. Here's the original photo.
Yup, Holiday House trailers were built in the off-season by Harry and David's in Medford, Oregon for only a few years.
They are crazy-spendy when one of the few come up for sale. But so very cool to look at.
OK, time to 'fess-up. Yes I photo-chopped Casie into the photo. I had a crazy idea and I tried to be subtle but you guys caught it.
You a bad boy
Is Robert DiNiro in this one?
Don't give me any ideas. It might get me banned.
This same car was at a local car show this weekend. Victoria B.C. Canada

The first photo is, I believe, Bobby Unser in the Arciero Lotus at Pikes Peak.
And Sir Stirling Moss is driving the 500 cc Formula 3 Cooper in the second shot.
