|More from Ron Cummings:
"Old Yeller VI was purchased by Bob Sohus
as a bare rolling chassis. Sohus installed an ugly homemade body along
with the Pontiac motor from the "Reynolds
The only time I saw the car was at Santa
Barbara in 1965. It took Sohus a long time getting the car ready
because of money problems. I will get you the exact date and number for
Santa Barbara as I have the race program at home.
Sohus called the car "Godzilla" after
a falling out with Balchowsky over payment for the car. The original bare
cassis is now owned by Reagan Rulau, the mechanic who (used to) maintain
Ernie Nagamatsu's Old Yeller II."
