My dad sent this picture to me this week, I thought it was cool.

He worked at Shalla Chevrolet here in Detroit at the time. This picture is from 1968 on the way to Windsor Dragway I believe. The truck was the dealer shop truck, that is his Shalla sponsored Camaro behind it. The Camaro is currently being restored (slowly) but I thought this was a great pic :cool:

You rarely saw cars on trailers then. Hard core street racers always had brackets welded to the frame with holes for a pin to go thru for the tow bar. Driver would be in the car, tow it to the race road and 30 seconds later it was lined up and ready.....:D :D ..30 seconds after that, the car was hooked up, the cash was paid and everyone was gone...:thumbsup:

Cool pic....days gone by....

great picture thanks for posting.

What kind of a sponsorship deal did your Dad have with Shalla Chevrolet ?

Looks like they let him use the truck for towing.
Did they provide gas money or free parts or other help?

cool picture
