In 1972, the Early Models were my favorite, as were the Fords, Dick Butterfiled did a good job in the EM class, driving this '56 Fairlane #56
, to a feature win. I bought this photo from the photo shop, for a reason. Even at 13, I knew what a CROWN VIC was. Other than one other CV, in DARLINGTON footage of the '50s, I had never seen a CROWNED race car. This blue and white, with red numbers car, was my first.
