Don Schumacher has owned multi-car
operations since day one, the difference was he owned the cars
(with family help). There were no big rigs, just a few ramp trucks.
Here's one of his 1969 Charger at OCIR in 1969.
Ed McCulloch out on Don Prudhomme

Hot Wheels colors were applied.
The Ace staging at OCIR
Spanish Galleon AA/FC of Al Arriaga
who was one of the few Hispanic funny racers, holding up the
banner until the Pedregon Brothers came along. Arriaga was a
low buck racer from Arizona, but his Spanish Galleon
machines always looked and ran great. Al had raced a Pro Stock
Camaro before buying the MOB AA/FA Fiat. He continued
to race the Fiat under the MOB name but with different
paint jobs. Arriaga also kept the Donovan Hemi that came with
the car. Arriaga eventually bought this Monza body for the chassis
and named the car the Spanish Galleon.
Such Matsubara out on
Al Hanna at OCIR in 1972.
