AUSTIN DICKERMAN
Money Talked, Nobody Walked


It seems like I remember something to do with peanuts on the Dickerman's Motor City sign.

     When you search the internet, there almost nothing that comes up on Austin Dickerman, except some Civil War soldier and an occasional mention of some car he bought for Eddie Delmolino. That doesn't seem fair, somehow, with the flamboyance of his life, with the number of years he was a businessman in Brandon, Vermont, and with the role he played in 1970's racing in the Northeast. Hence, this page on Austin, with all that I have on him.
      For those who read all this, I am still looking harder for the 1964 Chevelle that Dickerman bought from Jack DuBrul and eventually sold to Ray Richards fro Bob Ellis. I have it as the DuBrul #1 and the Ellis #76, but not the 57 or 357, blue and yellow version Austin had for Ed Foley.


From the Fonda Book
This is the only good shot I have of Austin, whose legacy seems inevitably intertwined with Joe Leto.
