And than he went on to building cars? I'm trying to figure out what you meant by "notable hot rodder" from your original post. Car builder? Owner? Likes hot rods?

He was a belly gunner in a B-24! (but that's a B-25 in the photo with Old Yeller).

I'd guess Jim Hall, being as how SCCA was behind Can Am, and he ran BBC engines there.
Prob. shouldn't play if I don't have a good question, but on the off chance I'm right I'll pass off to Garrell.

That pic is toooo cool! I am going to save it in my pics, it would make awesome wallpaper on the PC.

When my brother put his Buick in the Grand National Roadster show Max came to see it and walking around with this guy was a trip, he knew EVERYONE in the hot rod and custom world I'll tell you that, and movie stars too. He was a character if there ever was one, he wore is "dress" coveralls that day.

But alas, Max isn't the right answer anyway.

Yep your right. I think he ran the Buick's in his early cars. Now if you only got him to autograph them for you.

Guys gotta go. In fairness and not to keep you waiting. It was Don Yenko and the L88 vette that took some class victories. He then decided a built BBC would be fun in a 67 camero. Cheers
