    Anyone know what became of fat Jeff Seligmann? He ran a K/SA blue Plymouth Valiant with Joe Kenny Prepared lettered on the doors.

    Thanks Deno! It was actually A & S Performance Center on Lake Avenue, right next to the Jade Gun Shop, a few doors down from Oz Head Shop. Too bad communities don’t have head shops, speed shop, and gun shops like they use to!

    Yes, Jeff was not what we would call Mr. Healthy! Some one told me that he had moved to Alaska and was working as a guide, but I said, “not that Jeff.”

    Thanks D. I sort of fear that Jeff may have out lived the chassis and parked it in the sky. Of course, he will probably read this and call me up. Thinking that he died, I will have to say, “Hi Jeff, where ‘ya calling from?”

    Drake,
    I think people have been searching for years to locate Jeff.
    He had that 67′ 273 cubed K/SA Valiant in 1971/1972.
    A Joe Kenney prepared car. Saw his car in an old National Dragster For Sale Ad.

    Hey

    checking back in. Yes, I had heard he was living in FLA but now this is 11 years ago since his last sighting. I did some web based searches but found nothing on him. pkumble@gmail.com if you know any more.

    Initial search found Three Jeff Seilgmans in Florida- Sunrise,Ft. Lauderdale and Lakeland. Tom Blake can check local directory in Lakeland and make a ‘stakeout” 😆

    Met Jeff many years ago at a couple of races (point races for division 2).
    Attached is a picture, not a good view, of Jeff at the Atlanta division 2 points race in 1982.
    Thought he said he was in or near Orlando.

    Hi – Pete Kumble here again. I did correspond for a little bit with Drake Viscome and that was nice. So now, 2015 and still no Jeff Seligman sightings. Anyone?

    He’s standing next to “Casper the Ghost”
