Hey Chris,

Bud was a mechanic working in gas stations. Those days they did everything in the station even rebuilt engines. Most of the time he worked at Enco stations. Later on went to work for, I think Sigmans, I know it was a meat company in Denver.

I remember Marv Roberts' Barracuda ran a stripe around the tail. It had a nickname on it. He modified that nickname after the car was in a garage fire. What two names were on that car before and after the fire?

Marv's Cuda was named "Critter" and later "Crispy Critter" if I recall.

Professor Coupe....I was looking for a different name for Dave Fites #64. I had not heard it called the Galloping Pea, but that does not mean it was not called that. Hint: It had the owners name in it.

This car was silver, but was known as the "Grey Ghost". What number was it, who owned it and who was the driver?

What was the name of Larry DeChants Camaro that was painted two-tone black over copper? The name was a acronym and was a play on how Larrys life was going at this particular time span.

According to one of Candy Codner's 'Lotta Exhaust' articles in '74, she was calling it "The Big Red Hot Dog", but I don't know if that's the answer you're looking for.
