    TADA…I do..-NickName “Smokey”..Also Ran an Alcohol Funny Car …best time 6:65 @ 209:
    Go to : http://www.cerronegm.com
    “The Cerrone family extends far beyond the three generations of Cerrone boys. Many of our employees have been with us for years and most of our customers have been buying from the Cerrone family for decades, going back to when Al’s father, Smokey Cerrone, owned Harris Auto Sales in Providence, RI and sold Chrysler products.”
    ………….Also found out in a 2006 sports article: “Al ”Smokey” Cerrone, then a New England scout for the Minnesota North Stars…..” He got around !

    Hey MAS,
    That 68′ Hemi Cuda, Phil Cerrone SS/BA, an original factory Hemi Cuda (1 of 72).
    Harris Auto Sales, 500 Taunton Ave, East Providence..Same co-sponsor as
    John Macey’s ‘Heads Up’ 68 SS/BA..Yes (2) 68′ Hemi Super/Stockers co-sponsored by the same place. Phil’s car is red on top, white-center, with red-lace over-spray. I am looking at a color photo of the car right now. Also with the #500 NHRA.
    Both Hemi Cuda’s were part of the New Breed Racing Team, out of Groton, CT.
    Another 10.90 car,,just like ‘Heads Up’..Don’t think Phil was at Dover too much,,the
    Chry-Plymouth factory wanted those cars at NHRA points meets, if they wanted some
    factory-backing..
    New Breed also had an E/SA 68′ 340 Cuda that showed up a Dover a couple of times, in
    68’/69′ white notch-back, with black vinyl top. Ran right on the record 12.80’s or so.
    I remember he beat Ronnie Morehead’s ‘Tiny Tim’ U/S Volvo once in the first round.
    Can you say ‘conniption’.
    Paul,,Go New Breed!

    O.K., I’ll answer the question, yes; Keystone Custom mag Classics. There was also a Keystone Classic which didn’t have the black trim to accent the wheel shape that wasn’t nearly as popular. In my never to be humble opinion, that’s the only wheel for a ’67-’72 Mopar…

    storm king,

    Keystones were ‘el perfecto’ on the Mopars.

    Though, some of the American Torq/Thrust (all chrome) looked sharp, if the color of the car was medium-blue.
