One that entered my mind was the #29 Rice Automotive/John Rice owned, Kenny Edwards driven Chevelle that ran at both Lakeside and E-Wood. It had a towns name painted on the back of that car, that definitely matched up with the goings on at Rice Automotive....DO YOU REMEMBER?[/QUOTE]

On the back of Johns #29 Chevelle was painted: "Whiskita Falls".
If you ever spent any time at Rice Automotive, you may have had a Whiskita Fall. We partied hearty at that old shop and John produced some pretty fast cars out of there too! Johns still there, swingin wrenches and enjoyin a little "Jack" now and then.

Ed Brunner had cartoon character "Wally Gator" on the hood of his cars. It was on there for his sister Patty's little boy, Jason, who is now a grown man. The little tyke adored his Uncle Ed and Uncle Ed felt the same affection for his nephew.

Butch Wallace's lucky charm was "Woody Woodpecker". Rick Losh painted a perfect example on the right front window post. Butch had a thermos with "Woody" on it that I think Rick painted as well.

Sorry to disappoint but it was short for Potter and no he held many positions but never a short order cook. He was a mechanic by trade but had eight kids to feed so he did what was needed to provide and to keep racing of course.
