    On the Vintage Shots From Days Gone By thread - page 3572 - there is a series of photos that will probably be of interest to those who frequent this thread and I'm too technology challenged to to figure out how to transfer them over here.

    One of the photos is an in the garage Indy car shot and I wondering if anyone can identify the people in the photo? The mechanic-type at the right rear looks like Dizz Wilson but I'm not sure who the guy on the left side of the car is.

    Any thoughts anyone?

    I posted those on that thread about a year ago, I guess they are recycling them now:)

    If this is what you are referring to, I believe that is Marv Pifer on the right. 12800275_1004762226270675_7736618386725950661_n.jpg
