I'd forgotten to ask Jonnie, KAAY's then-resident-car-guy, what the Hogmobile was based on, chassis-wise. Looks to be about the size of a Volkswagon Beetle, or Thing, maybe? Maybe Warden VW donated the auto for publicity!?!? Maybe we'll never know, but someone in the Big K Crew drove this thing!
If anyone else has any history on The Hogmobile, please pass it on! This is great history that needs to "get out"! Jonnie says this picture hasn't been seen in public since it was taken, until he put it on his website and shared it with us here, as well. It was taken September 12, 1970 at the Razorback Pep Rally. Thank you, Jonnie!
