    Was working on my 70 'Cuda tonight and found Rocks signature on the rear drivers inner fender.
    I searched the interweb but I couldn't find much about him.
    Anyone know who he was?

    Probably a line worker who wanted to put a personal touch on the car.

    We did it, too, when I was building trains. We'd put messages or sign the carshell before we'd put the interior fiberglass walls in.

    A few years ago in one of the Mopar mags they did a story about a car which had a "Rock" signature on one of the rear inner wheel wells put there by a line worker.

    Rock has at least two dozen signatures out there.
    He must have signed a lot of e bodies.

    Rock did not sign my Cuda, but when I removed the dash I found "Stella" on the back of the glovebox. I put "Stella" back in the car when I reassembled the dash.

    Cool, I've only heard of the "Rocky" signature and one dollar bills in the rear quarters.

    I'm surprised to hear about stashed one dollar bills. I wouldn't leave one dollar bills today if I were a line worker and one dollar was a bigger deal back then.

    First on me too. A dollar is quite valuable.

    That guy leaving dollars must have been taking a ton of lunchbox items.

    Got any pics of the dollars in the rear quarters?
