This is a print that I had sitting around that was always sort of fun. It is the John Dearmore car, with (according to Bill Holland) "Hoot" Gibson up... let us know if this is incorrect, just to get it on the record here. They were trying to do a fire burnout when the car lost power. I had remembered it as losing the blower belt, but it was something where the car was still fired (no pun intended), but it wouldn't move. Took a bit of scrambling around, but it ended up just sort of heating up the paint a little. Shot would have been OCIR, probably winter of 1970-71 sometime.
