Can't forget that. I have a T shirt I bought at Hot August Nights in Reno in 1998 (year of the riots) with that on it and Ed signed it for me.

Is it possible that your father had a Clay Smith cam in his car ? Clay had red hair and often chewed on a cigar, at least that was the story behind the logo for his cam company.   

I believe that is an early logo for Thrush mufflers.

Similar, but, not it. 

1960's

Did Mr. Horsepower somehow become Thrush at some point? Logos are awful similar.

 From the first Fast & Furious movie. Clever move by the costume designer or set director, either one. After a lot of controversy a few years back, I don't know if the clothing line is still sold.

A Blog from Greaser Alley : https://greaseralley.com/2011/07/13/kenneth-howard-a-k-a-von-dutch/

My question to you , is what connection to model car kits is there ? I think his "Flying Eyeball" decal is in a few kits.

He was famous for his elaborate pinstriping, and a few kits have a decal sheet full of Von Dutch style pinstripes.   Monogram's Green Hornet springs to mind, as does the latest issue of Revell's '29 RPU.
