Dino and Company...

Tell us all you can about this photo:

Is it a repro...? Who owns it. Does it have a W-Block...? Did Dickie Doyle have anything to do with it...? Is the top chopped...?

The exhaust manafold looks wrong, is it a street rod now...?

The origional "Blown Hearse", as everyone here must know was a very well loved crowd pleaser at Dover and at other tracks in the N.E. in it's time.

Tell us all you can.

It was in "rough shape" when he was racing with it too...! But everybody loved it, true.

Anyway... they should be congratulated for doing a fine job, looks nice.

I wish he would duplicate those short but wide trumpet like outboard headers that Doyle had. He could make up some with caps and an extension underneith to the muffler and tail pipes. That would nail it...!!!

Who owns this car... it's not Doyle is it... some other guy right...? Are you saying that Dick Doyle owns both this and still owns the origional... I am confused.

Is Dickie Doyle still around...? Was he at Marcus Dairy today...?
