    Have you seen this Peter DePaolo picture before?

    This entire Miller/Offenhauser site is fantastic, and thanks to whoever posted it here previously.

    Great site!.. thanks for posting KO.

    I wouldn't be suprised if Dick knows something about the pic.

      Hey KnockOff,

      It has been many years but I did see the photo one time,during one of those nights I'll never forget.

      Late 60's or early 70's one May evening in Peter's room at the Speedway Motel, Peter, Peter's wife, Larry Truesdale. Dick Hoskins and I believe Sam Hanks and couple other people with Peter and a photo album --- how could you ever forget such a night.

      Believe it or not as I remember Peter was not anxious to tell much about that photo, other than to speak in glowing terms anout Cotton Hennings.

      Peter did admit that he was one badly hurt race driver from what had been a pretty violent crash --- with no seat belts naturally.

      I would give anything to have the chance to relive some of those evenings, only with brains enough this time to realize what I was seeing and hearing.

      Once again too soon old, too late smart.
