This pic has surfaced on Facebook in the last day.

Looks like a Chapparal 2E, and possibly a Harvey Aluminum out on the track.

My wife and I saw the Quentin Tarantino pic, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a couple Sundays ago, where Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring, and Roman Polanski, are part of the plot.

What an entertaining mess. LOL.

Yep, right you are... 


Thanks much for posting that Mike, I had never seen this photo. 


Read up on Jay Sebring too, since I remembered his name, but not who who was... if you now get your hair washed before a haircut, and get it cut with scissors, not a clipper, and no longer pay a few dollars, well, seems that was all Jay's doing! Not to mention it's no longer a barber shop, but a "hair salon"... 


Will have to add this to my celebrity slot racing file...

On the Facebook page I saw it on it says the photo was taken at a slot car track in Santa Monica, CA.
