My last post (see here) was of the ‘Taxi’ at Indianapolis in 1974. That image was taken by Dan Williams.
Jack Grice sent me HIS picture from the same race. Almost the same exact position. It was taken either just a few minutes before or just after Dan’s.
The crowd has changed out but the guy polishing the car is still at work. In the case of Jack’s picture he is at the front of the car with the rag on the hood scoop.
This is an image of the 4 door Maverick taken by Dan Williams in 1974 at Indianapolis…the ‘Big Go’.
A few small things have changed on the car since it was introduced earlier in 1974.
The hood scoop is different and interestingly the name as well. The vehicle started off named the ‘Tijuana Taxi’ and then ‘Juana Taxi’. Those names didn’t last long as the car took on the name of ‘Taxi’ from just before this race to the end.
Dan Williams was kind enough to share a series of images he took in the 1970’s.
This one shows, from left to right, my Dad, Bill Jameson and I can’t remember his name.
I’ll post more of these as time permits.
