Still cool show. I think the board could have done the research faster.

The '64 GT that was the backdrop at the lake and being pulled by the white Dodge through Denver on the way to the shoot was our very own Fred (47WeeWind) Coldwell, the VAC Historian Extraordinaire!

Wally's Great Coat

The presentation of the jacket is more important than a close-up. Wally had the jacket tailored in 1954 and used it frequently. It went to Africa.

Wally's memory and his contributions are sacred to me.

No. I wish I had additional Wally Wear, but I don't. I did find a tailored cowboy shirt.
