Chuck

I am not sure where this picture came from, but it is one of the only color shots I have of your fathers car.

I have color pictures of the '70 red with black stripes car, from the '72 U.S. Nat's. at Indy (IRP).
I will try to scan them this weekend.

Didn't a Ray Cramer end up with one of these 455 cars?

Red face Re: Ron Garey's 68 olds

Chuck, I sure do miss racing with your Dad. Always interesting conversations with him and his contempt for the powers that be was legendary. I remember he was tearing down in Memphis one time and the tech guy asked him " is this supposed to be like this?" His answer was " You're the one tearing it down don't you know?"

Thanks tom, but I don't think that one is Dad. There was aChesrown dealership in Columbus and they had a driver too.

Smile Re: Ron Garey's 68 olds

Bunkster.......I remember the 68 Hurst Olds that Ray Cramer had......It was in 1968 and he had it at the same time that Ron Gary had his.....It was an original silver and black one....Ray and I were good friends with Hillbilly Duncan....One day we were all at `Trails testing our cars and Ray offered my wife a ride in the passenger seat in that Hurst Olds........After a low 12 second pass she came back much more excited than I ever made her......Ray was one of those guys that made racing fun....

I have a number of photos of Ron Garey's cars, but don't know how to post in the forum. The first one was a 66 W30 442. If you email me at Donnellyj@msn.com I will send them to you.
