"Big Daddy" Don Garlits decal on the firewall

On the firewall of Bluegill's '40 is a neat decal of "Big Daddy" Don Garlits. This was one of the first, if not the first decal from Wynn's Friction Proofing to feature Don's Swamp Rat III.

The relationship between Don Garlits and Wynn's began in 1960 when a Wynn’s decal first appeared on Swamp Rat III. “Wynn’s was the first company to sponsor me,” said Big Daddy. “Before that, the only help I got was free parts.”

The name “Wynn’s Jammer” appeared on Swamp Rat VII a few years later. The current name, “Wynn’s Charger,” was on Swamp Rat X and was last seen on Swamp Rat XXIII in 1977.
