The WondermobileFrom Jon Allen:

That contraption you see was "The Wondermobile", which was built by Sonny Allen and Gill McColl. They welded together a 1957 Dodge Coronet and a 1967 Dodge van. Lots of stories were with this vehicle. I think the guy christening the vehicle was Bob Sloan, left to right were Gill, Sonny, Ted Tollefson (mechanic at the Dodge dealership) and Ralph Braun. I'm not sure what happened to the wondermobile. The motor was located in the van. Dad loved to pull into gas stations and have the attendant check the oil. Of course when they opened the Dodge hood there was no motor. Dad got lots of laughs out of that!

George Agustinack opened his print shop in the old St. James Lutheran church building sometime in the mid to late 60s
