Hey Mike ! I think that maybe George Croff's old Road Runner. I think he sold it to a Ray or Ed Meyers and it ended up out that way. Do you know any history of this one? Would be nice to have it now! If we had all the old cars we owned over the years we would be millionaires! I got to get digging for some photos today. Had breakfast with Lance and a few guys saturday...said he had a hard time getting on here... not sure why.
Dick, This car (1968 GTX) was done by Castronovo. There were two cars, a HEMI Convertible and the 440 Hardtop car. They were both painted pretty much the same. This one and the HEMI car were parked at Johnny Castronovo's lot on State and the Arterial back in the day. I remember going down there and seeing them when I was in High School. Eddie Meyers did get Georges old Orange Six-Pack and he had the blue GTX too. I painted the Six-Pack black and it ended up as "Raven Mad".

This is one of my favorite all time photos!! Arnie Beswick was the driver of the Famous GTO here. I took it when I was 15 at the 1966 Winter Nationals At Pomona, California right after the Blizzard here.

Dennis Johnson who used to be Kayahoora in Poland, NY has raced cars since he was a kid. Dennis and his son still race on occasion and have a few cars put away yet. But the Dennis Johnson I referred to .....used to be Kolor Kreations on Mohawk St. in Utica. He is now a service manager at Pep Boys New Hartford and still into cars.
