Bobby S (Senor Roberto)

Since I have a few extra minutes this morning.
Didn't HATCH'S ALL-AMERICAN have another 57 Chevy wagon, that may have run in 72' or
73'.
I believe (or think) that it was a 2-door, painted blue on the bottom (same color as the
American Gas blue), with a white painted roof.
I'm pretty sure it was dual-quad 283 (245hp or 270hp) that ran SS/LA or SS/MA.

As for Speed Parts Center pricing. I think we may still have a bill/receipt paper somewhere.
My sister or brother have some old Cuda stuff. If we can find it, I will post it.
My father related to me.

3/Angle Competition Valve Job
Machine guide bosses for Crane Teflon seals
1 set of Crane Teflon seals
Mill heads .010
1 set of valve springs (TRW stock replacement)
Set spring height
Cost $323.00

September 1969

The sedan delivery was raced by Gary Pierce& Gary Brown . They lived in Buchanan , they sold the car and partnered on a B/D i believe for a short time.

Hey Rich, I remember that day that you had that incident with Ralph's
corvette in the burn-out area ! OUCH !! If I remember correctly, Ralph
pulled out his duct tape and patched his baby up and continued racing.
What an eye catching corvette that was ! Loved it !! :-)

I remember it too. Boy was Ralph pissed. For a few seconds, he was absolutely speechless. After those few seconds though, well, you don't want to know. Lets just say that it was very colorful!! ..............Mikey :lol:
