I posted the below Feb. '68 Bill Allen Chevrolet/Dick Harrell ad in the Old Newspapers thread previously but Roger asked if I could drop it here too.
Great the old format pics are working Ok also still easily moved around!

Talked via phone recently with a gentleman who worked at Bill Allen Chevrolet back in '69 - he was working the "rack" the day I bought the Chevelle. He commented, "All three Dickie Harrell cars"

Any chance you remember my Chevelle . . .. Bob replied, "I really do, there was a Nova/Chevy 2 and a Camaro. All three Dickie Harrell cars"
"Bob" is Bill Allen's youngest son . . .

I am searching for a fellow from Gallatin who (one early summer evening in 1970 on Hwy 13 between Gallatin and Hamilton, MO) met more than his match. He was driving THE HOT DODGE in Gallatin - believe it was tricked out - never had a chance with my plane/Jane orange V8 Chevelle. . .

Summer of 1970, the other Race . . .
The other race was just outside Karen's hometown of Gallatin, MO in the summer of 1970 shortly after we were engaged. She and a lifelong friend Janel Reynolds, were riding around with me that summer evening when we were “invited” to race Karen & Janel’s underclassman, Ben Houghton in his strong running Challenger 440 six pack. Junior Burke set it up on Highway 13 between Gallatin and Hamilton. Ben smoked his tires - I eased off the line and then hammered it to the turnaround. Flashing red lights in the distance heading our way halted a rematch . . .
Gallatin Missouri, summer of '70 race remembered

Feb 9, 10 & 11, 2018
Orange Crush "home coming" at O'riellys World of Wheels event in Kansas City

Not the typical show where I had to explain "Bill Bill Allen Allen" or his connection with Dick Harrell

The response was overwhelming ❤
Bob Allen (Bill Allen's son) dropped by to see the Chevelle again & talk about old times ❤

Maybe this will help convince some of the neh sayers that your car is what you have always claimed it to be and can finally get the credit it deserves.
