Red Arndt and Boots Podjed had seat time in the 45 during the late 1960s

I see a lot of discussion on the driver of the #45. I just zoomed in on the photo and “RICK” is the name on the roof, so I assume it is Rick Russel.

Not near the quality of 60's work.....but the 1962 rendition of the Emrich bug.....minus the pointy fronts on the roll bars. I did this back in the 80's.....I originally built it to match the 62 version, then redid it to match the McCoy look in early 1963...then back to 62 again....couldn't make up my mind back then....thus the points never went back on the bars.
