Here is a picture that I forgot I had! Bill Stroppe in the infamous Big Oly Bronco. Anyone know what year and where this is from?

Wes: I’d hazard a guess that this photo was taken after Oly retired from racing action and had been “cleaned up” a bit. Note the number 1 on the side; it still wears that number today and I believe it was put on the truck after its racing days were over.

I believe the Bronco in the background is the Bronco “Colt”, driven for many years by Bill Rush. From what I can see of the wing, I’d guess this picture was taken in the late ’70s when Armando Barbosa owned it.
