    Rootie, this is Dick Mealy, looks like the old Leightenberger sprinter. It was previously owned/driven by Don Gillette.

  3. Is that a D500 Dodge to the left in the photo? Looks like the double checkered flag badge on the front.

    I looked again and you my very well be correct about Lou Baney. I knew him pretty well, he was the president of SEMA for a while. He also founded the Saugus Drag Strip in the '50's...

    I won't argue the pre66 issue with you Gary. The attire screams early 70s though. It's not worth getting your panties in a bunch over. I like most of your postings. Where you find that cool stuff is beyond me and I give you credit for your web searching skills.

    LOL! You are unique man and I love it!

    My grand father was a Packard dealer. So I guess chopping up the back of a Packard and making it a tow truck/service car was the cool way to show up to your Packard customers.
