Hope this somewhat Off Topic post is OK...

I am new to this forum, but a long time Mopar fan. Here is a picture of my favorite old Mopar, a Triple Black 1968 Hemi Charger R/T that I call "Bullitt"

Does anyone recognize the guy posing with my Charger?!?... I hope I have attached the pictures correctly, they are not showing up in the preview.

I'll take a guess that it's the guy who drove in the scenes for Bullitt?

No idea, really, but I do know thats a 1968 Mercury Cougar behind them:)

Is that Richard Landy? It wouldnt let me write "DlCK". Anyhow, he's the only one I know in the Mopar world with the cigar trademark....

You are absolutely correct!!! Mr Landy was a famous super-stock racer from "back in the day", and a 1968 Hemi Charger R/T was one of the Mopars he drove... Mr Landy attended a Mopar Meet in 1988 in Fort Worth where this picture was taken. BTW, he is one of the nicest guys you would ever meet, unlike some racers of that period...
