I remember having the opportunity to sit in this car when my cousin Dale Gould was building it. At the time the car was at his muffler shop on Burbank Blvd. in Van Nuys, CA and the hydraulic system for the low ride was giving him a run for his money. I have many fond memories of bothering my cousin when he was building this caddy, and other cars like the "Bubble Car," and others. My brothers and I would bug Dale to no end, and his father, "Uncle Harry," would have are back and tell Dale to let us watch and not worry about us! My brothers and I did get to help him when he was building the turn table for the "Bubble Car." He let us try our hand at welding on the frame of the turn table. [He] built a variety of awesome show cars that where in TV shows, the 29' Blue Roadster used in the "Doby Gillis" show, the "Bubble Car" in the old "Mission Impossible," along with his concept "Alligator" flying car. I have home movies and family pictures of some of his projects. The dragster he built was awesome along with his motorcycle/trike bike. My brothers and I had the best time of our lives during the 60's. His father, "Uncle Harry" made the best damn pancakes in the world! If any one knew Dale, chances are, they had some of "Uncle Harry's"pancakes, too.
