"The Wheeler Dealer in the
pits @ the first PDA race. That's my two-month-old '67 Suburban.
Chevy did a major facelift for the '67 model, and it was a late
offering in the model year. As such, the '67s weren't sold west
of the Mississippi that year. I think I could have easily sold
it for twice what I paid for it, it was that rare in the west.
The roof rack was from a '67 Chrysler New Yorker wagon. One of
my crew guys ripped it off while the wagon was parked in the
owner's carport. (He could see the family in their living room
watching TV while he did the deed.)"
