Hey AF IV, Larry 73, LENNY and John Mc: You guys were all talking about the Statewide Pinto and Whip Mulligan in the post below and that reminded me of a picture in my files. That happens a lot..someone mentions a car, a crash or some race on 3Wides and I remember a picture that I shot maybe over 40 years ago. You guys mentioned that Whip might have run the Statewide Pinto (or not) at one point. Well, looking at this old photo, he wouldn't have had to walk very far to get in it--the 73 was right next to the 3 in the pits. LOL. This is most likely the Schaefer Qualifier at Nazareth in 1974.

The talk on 3wides was that Whip Mulligan didn't build the Statewide Pinto and I don't know much chassis tech stuff (But I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night-haha), but the Pinto here has those almost Whip Mulligan-like sway bars (or whatever you call them) on the front end. Could Whip have added his touch with those sway bars to that Statewide 3 Pinto or am I just thinking too much? Maybe he did test drive it, maybe not. I have no real knowledge of that happening. Just guessing here.

The coolest part of this photo, besides the neat old 3 Pinto, is on the far right in the background. That sure looks like Anthony IV, eating my favorite Nazareth Speedway menu item--the french fries!
