The young Mike Sullivan...A/FA days, and was competitive with the blown guys, as the clutch and tire thing was still in development.

Mike Sullivan's injected A/FA. Mike could run with the blown cars early on, but he would see the light, and a blower was in the near future.

Horchar Bros. Super Thief with a little commentary from Kenny Youngblood...

"We did the body and paint at Dick Olsen's shop in Bellflower. They brought in the bare glass body, and wanted the roll cage enclosed. Olsen said, 'Blood, this is a job for you (I liked working with fiberglass too), so I made a cardboard "buck", and laid up the enclosure. They had the name "Super Thief" (a play on Nelson Carter's "Super Chief), so I suggested the prison stripe paint scheme. Olsen shot it and I lettered it, including a cartoon on the deck lid of the thief himself.." --KY

The Cal-Hydro roadster...Olds Powered and probably running on gas, but I had to put a photo TAKEN by Don in here!
This shows why he drove, and his brother took the pictures.

Turns out they snuck some "pop" in this sucker occasionally.
