James 'Block' Haddon's 60 Plymouth ex police car, Daytona or Bust, 1963
More from the family archive. Chrysler was more reserved I guess.
This last Imperial looks like Rockafellers car. If so it's about 3 miles from here.
Otis!! Obviously not in Mayberry.
I want one now. And a Simca. Oh yeah and one of those eight wheel trucks.
otis should have kept the '34 roadster!

That light blue jeep has the mount for the cable cutter from WW2.The Germans would string cable over the roads hoping to decapitate allied Jeep drivers.
I wish my brother George was here... .....
Looks more like a trailer hitch - so that it can be towed behind a car. There is a folded windshield there as well.
The first photo shows Al Unser going up Pikes Peak in 1964. I believe he beat out brother Bobby that year to win. The car was built by Vince Conze.
The second photo shows Jerry Unser (at far right) watching as his McKay Special is fuel at the Mobil fuel building at Indy in 1958. He ended up riding this car over the Third Turn wall in the first lap crash that year but basically walked away with a dislocated shoulder. The shoulder was popped back into place in the Infield Hospital by a doctor while brothers Bobby and Louie physically held Jerry down.
Where's Jamie Davis when you need him ????
What he described was a real necessity, though.
Separate names with a comma.
