1965 Six Flags Over Texas

Found five pictures of 1965 Six Flags Over Texas on 11 x 14 cardboard.  One is signed:  To Juarez from John A. Gavia 1961.  Juarez Robert Minick was Bob’s Dad.  John was Mr. Minick’s protegee and a wonderful sign painter, also.  Mr. Minick and John ran the Paint/Sign Shop and produced millions of signs for Six Flags.  I remember watching them paint the signs free form by hand. I’m sure so many were thrown away not appreciating the art.  Wish I’d been a dumpster diver.

Anyone recognize the couple in the car?  I’m sure a publicity shoot.  Where are they now?  And where are those wonderful cars?  So great Bob kept  wonderful memories from his Dad, too.
