I forget whom owned the race rig all these years later but it was unique having a wing engine stuffed in it. The gentleman sitting on it was a close chapter friend of mine alas Frank Saito, a WW2 veteran whom served in the Japanese/American 442nd combat regiment. The fellow standing behind frank is the one that brought the rig to the meeting and provided us an interesting view into professional racing back in the day, so I'm glad I snapped and saved the picture all these years later ~:<)
