Interesting to me that one would spend the money and get a stripped down 210 hardtop instead of a Bel-Air post. I'm guessing money would be fairly close.
those were the days!

Another story I heard years ago... Jimmy is part of the I-96 freeway embankment in Livonia, Mi. which was being built during his disappearance... I could be wrong....

Irvine was kind of unique back then, nobody living in the city owned their property, it was all "leased land", owned by the Irvine Co.. The drag strip did not sell the land to the developers (because they never owned it), the Irvine Co. just cancelled the lease, so they could build the big hotel next door (across the RR tracks). The hotel did not want the noise...
