Of all the things that irritate me, this really pushes my button. An endless string of appreciative tumblrs running my photo, and not crediting me as photographer, nor getting the name Parnelli Jones spelled right. Idiots!


Above found on http://outsidethecubicle.tumblr.com/post/91605614423/musclecardreaming-parnelli-jones-ford-with-a#notes

Here's my original photo below, just to prove I took the photo. At the Escondido cruise night that is a Friday night event all summer long, just about 30 minutes north of San Diego.

From the post I did in 2008: http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2008/04/this-awesome-mustang-now-has-dedicated.html

And since the first guy to copy my photo didn't bother adding a note to his Tumblr post, none of the rest of the people that reposted it could learn where the car and hauler were from, who make them, and eventually, that Wes sold them. Neither of these are more than 10 years old, Wes had a passion for the project were he envisioned having a Boss 302 just like Parnelli drove, on a race car hauler that would be a perfect match.

I took galleries of this car and hauler several times, and you can see all the detail photos, if you like, by clicking on this link: http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/search/label/Les%20Werling%27s%20recreation%20of%20the%20Parnelli%20Jones%20SCCA%20Mustang

the truck started out looking like this:

and Muscle Car Review even featured the combo hauler and race car in the July 2008 issue
