A photo of the Shark that Dave Wallace Jr. shot in the early 1980s. The photo is taken in front of Bob Bowen's house in Lodi. Bowen bought both the Shark and the Golden Piranha, and Dave shot both cars that day. Car Craft editor Jon Asher accepted and published both cars, to Dave's surprise, "and certainly to the astonishment of readers of "Drag Racing's Complete Magazine," he told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2020. Wallace recalled the owner being a longtime fan of De Rosa's work. Photo courtesy of Dave Wallace Jr.
