Air Cleaner Tribute
After the re-discovery of the Olsonite AAR Cuda, I made contact with each living Olsonite Race Driver, inviting them to autograph the air cleaner as a tribute to their sponsor; Ozzie Olson. Those Drivers were Dan Gurney, Bobby Unser, Jerry Grant, and Wally Dallenbach. Each was excited to learn of the ‘Cuda’s existence and were pleased to honor Ozzie in this way. Our world has since lost Jerry Grant on August 12, 2012, Dan Gurney on January 14, 2018, and Bobby Unser on May 2, 2021.
