The sad thing is that the design of the parking ramp had more thought put into then most new buildings do now.

Our family trekked from oregon to Kansas in 1964 in an almost identical Pontiac> It was blast, a pretty good car until the right side A arm broke off in 1967! GM replaced it. I'd love to have one. Years ago I had to visit an elderly couple down in Orange County. They had an 100 % identical Catalina down to the Fingerhut waffle plastic seat covers! I mean IDENTICAL.
How did you come across this pic? We have this car, but never scene this image. Any more by chance?
Roootie, that's a really interesting photo of the wire wheeled big car with some kind of flat head engine. I'm not an expert by any means but I don't recognize the engine at all; it seems like it has too many head bolts for anything I've seen before.
And the second attached photo shows Marshman and Parnelli running in 1962; looks like the track is Langhorne.
Thanks for posting!!!
I'm no expert on the old flatties either but I'm thinking maybe a Lincoln (?) I'm sure others will know for sure.
