I have wanted to finish this car for sometime. He got the car from Nicholson after he won the 62 Labor Day Nationals at Indy. Platt Match Raced it for three months and go a 63 Chevy he called The Georgia Shaker. This car is as accurate as I can get it by finding only three pictures and talking with Hubert himself about the car. This car is kind of a neat piece of history because after Platt gave it back to Nicholson who then I believe sold it the car dissapeard and has never been seen again to Huberts knowledge so here are the pics
