    mikepa, Take a look at these from my personal collection. They certainly don't have the quality of your photo, but they had to have been taken, literally, within seconds of yours. I have 1974 for the date though.

    I always loved the look of this car. To me, it epitomized what a dirt mod of that era was all about. You are right about the pictures being taken at about the same time. I'll go with 1974 as perhaps my pic was printed in 1975. Or, I just remembered incorrectly! Imagine that; it took us some 38 plus years to bump into each other. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    I think Gil Hearne was another of those Fabulous Floridians that were so successful here in the Northeast. That group included some of the Greatest; Will Cagle, Bob Malzahn, Buzzie Reutimann, Jackie Evans, Pee Wee Griffin, Gary Balough, Rags Carter, Herbie Tillman........

    Mike, that photo of mine, which is the same angle as your photo, includes the same people in the periphery. It had to have been taken within seconds of your photo!! I loved the look of this car as well. Rossell built cars for Will Cagle for years. I think this car was built right after the Gremlin bodied car which was to become the Joe Leto #50 driven by Tommy Corellis.

    Getting back to car numbers, 716 of Charlie Webster at Waterford Speedbowl, and the 5 7/8 of Charlie Trombley from Plattsburg NY area.

    My guess would be Charley Jones as his team at the time(the#18) often pitted next to the #124.
