I never was a fan of Halloween. I guess orange and black are the Halloween colors. I was a fan of this orange and black thing though--Elton Hildreth's 16-J.
Elton's cars were cool looking and were different because of that sign on the roof. Was that some sort of aero advantage? Haha. Guess not. 
Jack Zeiner was a big fan of Elton. Zeiner's race cars were also black and orange with that sign thing on the roof.
When I was a kid, I bought this 3x5 print of Hildreth in the old Falk's building, at the old Nazareth Farmer's Market. It even came with the blue plastic Dymo label on it. 
This is one of those 'photographer unknown' pictures. I saw a few of these Dymo labeled pics floating around online. I hate that 'photographer unknown' thing. Maybe that blue label could be a good clue as to who made this photo. Someone took the time to make this picture and unfortunately it then travels the rest of its life--'photographer unknown.'
