a legend, a mutt, and a winning race car that slapped around Ferraris and called them it’s bitch (mutt, bitch, get it?) (These are the funny ones folks, tip your waitress)

A rather ungainly machine, it featured a wide variety of components including an old Coca-Cola sign. Balchowsky was well aware that his new racer looked like and very much was a ‘junkyard dog’ so he painted it yellow and named it ‘Old Yeller’ after the famous hound in the Disney movie by the same name. On the insistence of Disney, he later renamed the cars ‘Old Yaller’.

The car won its first race by a margin of 13 seconds. Against an even stronger field, which included Phil Hill in a big Ferrari, Hauser scored back to back wins a few months later. Balchowsky also took turns behind the wheel of his creation. His greatest victory came at the 1958 Santa Barbara Labour Day races where he beat Richie Ginther in a Ferrari 250 TR.
