I have a grille thats suppose to be from a early Novi roadster. I’ll send you a picture of it if you think you could confirm it’s originality. Please reply with an address.
Thank you for your help,
Love the Unsers! Also, what is unique about this photo? Usually Al is the one with the serious look on his face and Bobby is happy and outgoing….roles reversed here as Bobby looks like he has his “game face” on as he gets ready to go out and qualify for the 1967 Indianapolis 500 mile race….
Donald-who is the man satnding just to the right of the man most in the foreground? He looks quite familiar…
I always understood that Mom Unser was the one who made the Fireyear and Goodstone jackets.
I always laugh when I hear of the “Andretti Racing Dynasty,” because it’s such a joke. The three Unsers, Big Al, Bobby and Little Al have won the Indy 500 nine times among themselves, but you never hear them referring to an “Unser Racing Dynasty” – unfortunately. If you haven’t seen the Unser Racing Museum in Albuquerque, do yourselves a favor and go see it.
Let me know what you think?
