racers and politicians

Dodgy mixture. Like oil and water at times. But B.C. did have Flyin' Phil Gaglardi. Was the flyin' for the Lear jet he had for a time? Or for the speeding tickets he got? As highways minister he said he was just testing the curves. Here's one of a few photos that seem to pop up of Phil in a race car. This time a straight line dragster getting a ticket, or maybe just a warning, from Bernie Smith. From the Motorama of 1958.
