I can't see from the downloaded photo, but what state are the plates on the car from?

In reply to:
The car tag is covered by the picture and frame. since this photo was made in the Atlanta, Ga. area I would assume - Georgia. Some people carried Alabama tags to get around the insurance. Does anyone have any idea what yr the car would be. Since he was living and working in S.C. part of that time it might be a S.C. tag.

Thank You my Friends.

The demon is a 1971 as is the car parked to the left which is a Swinger.

I didnt have to even look at the pictures. I used to race Mopars. I knew the years. The best car I ever owned was a 1969 Roadrunner 440 Magnum.

I knew that you knew what you were talking about.

What I wanted to do was provide an independent source for her to confirm the information.

For instance, if somebody had said, "The car on the right is a 1970 Dodge Challenger" she may have simply taken them at their word and lead her on a wild goose chase. Providing links to confirm information makes the entire endeavor a bit easier overall.

I think a huge portion of Jo's problems are that people have sent her a number of items she simply can't deal with; this photo with "clues" being one of them. There are no "clues" in to the photo. The glasses are meaningless. Thousands upon thousands of people wore glasses with frames like that in that time period. To attempt to connect the frames in that photo with the frames in the police artist sketch is futile and would never lead anywhere.

How could a person or couple afford 2 new cars with NO CREDIT and no income?

That photo appears to be a flea market, where people with little money go to sell unused household items to help make ends meet. Wouldn't that contradict the image that he was living lavishly off of a stash of stolen cash?

I'm not trying to give you a hard time - just asking a question that others are going to ask you about that photo.

I've been following this thread with great interest.

She also told us the guy was a crook. Those two cars sitting there, if they did belong to Duane would only amount to a total of about $5000 bucks, for the pair.
He could have stolen that cash somewhere.

I read the on another board. Don't people that search for antiques go to flea markets?

"I think that many profilers who have analyzed Cooper have suggested that he might be someone who was probably interested in antiques

Popeye"

Almost looks like Bill Cole to me. LOL.

(I'm pretty sure it isn't. Bill isn't dead, for one thing, and wouldn't be old enough. But maybe Chuteless will comment.)

No its not me....I think.

Shortly after D.B. got his cash, a guy wrote an article about me, titled " How I would Hijack An Aircraft for $200,000. and Get Away With It". No one would publish the article. He took photos of me dressed and looking (quite) like the picture that was first published ( an artist sketch) with the thin tie, dark glasses etc,....... and also pix of me carrying my rig at Pearson Intnl Airport, holding a ticket for a flight in my hand,..... also one of me with rig buying flight insurance.

I don't think they were ever used.


Bill Cole LOL as I fade into the sunset..LOL lol lol

If you are asking about whether or not I did the hijacking...no comment

If you are asking if the journalist wrote the story and took the photos, that part is very true.

Unfortunately, I cannot locate the journalist who wrote " How I Would Hijack a Plane for $200,000. and Get Away With It".

I was asked to try to find him about two years ago, and just do not know where he is now. I would like to have had a copy of his article, but never thought it would be of interest in 2007.



I don't know if I am considered an "Old Timer", but I sure feel old at times.

If you know the name of the journalist, it may be possible to find him with a little research...
