OCIR Program

Caption reads..."DAVE BOWMAN learned a lesson, never loan your motor. He got it back, but not in the same condition as loaned.
Rounding up parts might keep Dave too busy to make this meet."

From an OCIR program for an 8 car AA/FA show

No Mercy

It's a new one, as you can see by all the stuff out in front of the front axle, but one of the better looking new ones.

Mike Sullivan's new ride...the question I pose, why this paint scheme? How come the old Stars and Stripes paint job didn't come back?
I think that would have had this car booked solid, if it even vaguely resembled Mike's old car!

and yet I forget again...no photo credit


Now, here is what I think is the classic stance for a Fiat Altered. Randy and Dexter Bradford's Fiat, Irwindale 1969. Probably with Frank Harris driving.

Before there was the purple fiat, there was the blue Fiat...Injected Rat motor, on gas...

Looks like an L & M photo
