    I've posted so many of these old Snapshots that I can't remember if I've posted some or not ... if so, then apologies.

    Good guess but I'm not sure. Same thing goes for the car which appears to be an early 4-bar. Any info, Rootie? Thanks for posting.

    You're right, 1960.

    Back in the real early sixties, I used to drive by this place frequently on my way over to my girlfriend's house. I used to see the Piehler shop and wonder why it wasn't closer to their main shop on Lake Avenue. Never did find out why, nor did I ever know the shop was a past home to Joyce Motor Corp. who sold Chevs and apparently Cunninghams which my grandad helped build.

    Indy,
    the car is a meskowski built car #4 supposedly Mel Bursac owned. Campaigned 1959 and 1960.

    If you look closely the driver and owner are semi legible.

    Drollinger wasn't too kind to it.

  24. Pontiac used Tri power emblems only in 1958 and 1959. The emblem you see does not relate to tri power. www.pontiacheaven.org
