Default Re: The Golden Chariot and Ed Mailo

This is a copy of a photograph from the Pat VanDyke collection.

Here is a photo showing the end result of the crash I talked about in the original story. Doug Plue in the #40 car did a number on the "Chariot". Pat VanDyke can be seen just left of center (no glasses) looking at what is left of his race car. Check out the rivets that held the plexiglas top in place that covered the escape hatch. The crash crew did away with that pretty quickly I assume.

I talked with Mike Barney and he still has this vicky body.

Look at the P&E Special 4 located just in front of the number nine. This stood for Pat and Ernie. Pat Van Dyke and Ernie Reese were the owners of this car.
