    After this neat little car went through a couple of hands it was time for a new paint job and some updating. I was one of a number of fellows in our local club who helped sand the old paint and filler off . When we got around to stripping the "bed " at the rear we found it was made from old license plates and soup cans ! It was fixed properly and went through some other owners and sadly the last I heard of the car ended wrecked and sent to the dump but that was strictly hear say and remains unconfirmed....

    Could this have been a flower car for funerals originally? The raised, squared-off area around the bed gives it that look.

    What make is this truck? It brings back a childhood memory from Chicago: The old Adventureland amusement park had a derelict fire engine for the kids to play on and it had this same front end; when I saw it I thought at first it was a Duesenberg (hey, I was eight years old). ID please?

    There was a photo of Parnelli bailing out of the right side of the car, about three feet off the ground and parallel to the deck with the flames / heat distortion in the background.

    When asked about his departure from Calhoun, Parnelli was quoted as saying " I didn't care if I broke a leg or what, all I wanted from that son of a bitch was OUT ! ".

    Slim Helson's F.I Corvette-engined Maserati. He told me that once at a race he gave Zora-Arkus Duntov some gaskets he needed. Soon after, a 4' x 4' crate arrived at his house with F.I. units, all kinds of other goodies from Duntov as a thank you. And one time he freaked people out at the track by hacking a hole in the aluminum hood with a hatchet to get more air to the engine
