Comments: Kind of a unique looking car that many Flemington regulars from the 70's might remember.  Looks like there's a little extra room for some junk in the trunk!

01/02/03 Scott Pacich Ronnie's last name is Guinther. No relation to Charlie Gunther. He actually started with this car at the Reading Fairgrounds.
01/14/03 Bill Hanna This car had an extended life later on as Skip Turyona’s first car. He used it in Rookies and Sportsman, just changing the car number to his own # 8T. Bill Hanna, Easton, PA
02/16/04 Carl Krott This car was also a car that I designed for Ronnie and it had a unique body style and paint scheme. This car (like his first) was a 1937 Chevy "humpback" coach cut and sectioned to reduce its size. The paint was all "Candy" color with a touch of pearl. It was Candy Apple Blue with purple "pearl" flames blended into the artwork and then sealed with 4 coats of clear. This was Ronnie's last car and as Bill Hanna mentions was sold to a driver from Flemington when Ronnie stopped driving.
02/19/04 3-Wide For anyone who watched the sportsman division at Flemington in the early 70's, the #33's of Ronnie Guinther were always eye catching.   The shape, the paint, the lettering... the whole package!
12.30.12 Skip Dyrda Ronnie and I became friends before either of us could drive, I think, racing models up on Mount Laurel Road. And I'm sure it was he who introduced me to Flemington. It was my favorite track for both watching and driving, even though I lived just a few miles from Reading. Not sure I ever actually watched Ronnie race at Flemington...I was probably busy with my own car at the time.
