    Any attic mice running around with the 66′ Biscayne wagon. The ‘Bad Banana IV’
    A 427/390HP engine, the car ran in SS/J in 70′ (?). Owned by Ted Hartman, from
    upstate-western New York,,town of Salamanca. Had the staggered front-end and few other tricks. There is a photo of his car at Dover, spectator-side..coming off the line..
    Now I have to go search the site…

    Gracie’ Il Duce’,,,
    Thats one Bad Banana,,
    Really, there were a few of them..Hartman Chevrolet,,Salamanca, New York..The Bad Banana originator. The 66′ Biscayne ‘Bad Banana IV’, I guess ran F/S and then SS/J, in
    69’/70′ ?? Another 427 cubed wagon,,,like the “Pied Piper” (Mr. Valentine)..
    The yellow 66′ wagon was at Dover,,like all famous cars should have been 😀
    Frank Iaconio,,was a visitor,,too…Thanks for the lead to the other thread,,Let’s see,
    An Italian from New Jersey, goes to York, PA with a yellow 57′ Chevy,,races and wins at the
    Super Stock Magazine Nationals with a car called the ‘Banana’,,and takes home a
    69′ Cougar Ram Air Cobra Jet….AHHHHH,,Americana at its Finest 🙂
