Comments: What a great photo.  Great looking racecar.  Most in the sport stayed away from "unlucky green" but this car, with gold wheels and gold pin stripe is really sharp. 

But what I like even more about this photo is that it reminds us of a time when most cars were based out of a local repair shop.  This photo was taken in front of President's Park Gulf" in Sayreville, NJ, and I'm sure that anyone who ever saw a racecar parked out front of a local shop still remembers it everytime they pass by, even though it maybe some 40 years later....

I was looking for my uncle Johnís old car and found it on your site. I remember as a kid traveling to New Jersey one summer to spend a week. I got to spend some time with both my uncleís John and Phil at the garage. They let my cousin Mike and I clean and wax the car for the next race. I just loved that car, and boy how we had that green paint shimmering in the sun. I also got to go over to Wall Stadium with John to see him race. What a blast it was. Donít remember what place he got in the race but I will never forget it. Thanks for your site here.
