A strategy meeting of the Cro-Sal Team

The fellow bending over the wall is Bill Mitchel who worked for Oldsmobile and was Ralph Salyer's co-driver in 1967. He isn't the Bill Mitchell from GM Styling. Also behind the wall is Wesley Sweet who also worked with the Chaparral team. The small boy behind the wall with the jacket with stripes on it is Mark Salyer, he is Ralph's son.

I seem to always end up watching the first few minutes (of RA Can-Am), down to threads on the tape really, and then FFing through the drama parts to see the brick set.


Charlie's text above is precious. And Thanks Tom and Jerry for the usual outstanding views. :)
