thanks for the reply Bill . When I talked to George he told me he ran it under the "Duanes Sunoco" sponsorship for a number of years with help from Hamburger , sometime in 77 they painted the car in Hamburger team colors and in 78 they changed the car to 74 trim ( grill and taillights) and took the car to Pomona for the Winternationals . they did real good with it there . later in 78 they changed it back to the 71 grill and taillights and at the end of the season the car was sold to a fellow up here near where I live .

George traded cars with Brian Bachelder (Bachelder Bros., Chipman and Hamburger ( Demon)for a while, then traded back later that year, Both stopped racing at that time.

George told me he had Bachelders Demon for awhile and sold the SS/JA Challenger to a fellow here in New Brunswick Canada and later sold the Demon back to Bachelder , George also had another Challenger that was an SS/DA car with a Landy Hemi in it but dont know if that left his stable around the same time or at an earlier or later date
