    Thanks. I thought it looked like Bud. I lived about half a mile from the dealership. The Chevy store has been gone for years. It was turned into the parking lot for the manufacturing company next door. The city of Indianapolis was probably glad to see the dealership go - something about dumping trash in the river behind the building. One of my memories is rolling past there one day and seeing the Meisterbrauser Scarabs on display in the parking lot.

    Met Hal years ago when he drove for a friend of mine. He was one of the nicest, and probably smartest, guys to ever crawl into a sprinter. RIP

    Didn't he flop the Bardhal car over in the front chute a year or two before this ?

    1961 he flipped at end of the front stretch, 1962 he flipped at the head of the front stretch. Both Bardahl sponsored cars.

    Yes, he did. Both in 1961 and apparently in 1962 as well during the 500 itself. I say "apparently" because there seem to be conflicting stories as to whether he actually got upside down or maybe just got up on the wall in the 1962 incident. It's hard to tell from photos of the car afterwards and I don't think there is any film of the multiple car crash. There wasn't any doubt about the 1963 crash as Rootie's photos show the roll bar completely flattened. Amazingly, he was able to leave the hospital and visit the track not too longer after he crashed.

    Swi66 - The pic of the '41 Americar and CJ2 coming off the assembly line is superb!

    Check out "The Covered Wagon" bumper sticker on the car. This is on Highway 30 west of Kearney, NE. This pic is from before they fixed it up for the Lincoln Highway anniversary a few years ago, it was looking pretty nice for that but it looks like there is not much going on there again.
    When I was a kid we would stop once in a while to see what they had for souvenirs. I imagine it was quite the tourist attraction before I-80 was built a few miles south of this.

    Lots of those old Willys around here got V8 (mostly SBC) trans plants when the 4 banger got tired or blown up. I knew a guy that had a 394 Olds and a hydro with the Olds rear end in a Jeepster taht was wicked as hell !!

    Andy Linden's roadster with the left rear off in 1956. Marvin Pifer sitting on the wall wearing his Sam Browne belt while waiting for the #75 Commercial Motor Freight upright to be ready. I believe that might be mechanic Dizz Wilson sitting next to Pifer. Pifer passed his Rookie Test in #75 and here's a link to a photo of him afterwards when he was removing his Rookie Stripes.
