    Today at the SPORTS MUSEUM OF DUTCHESS COUNTY 2nd RACE CAR SHOW…Fred Murphys wife ‘Patsy” ,nephew and family brought out Fred’s “Yellow Fever” 59 Chevy junior stocker.First public viewing in many a year. Brian had his Display set up and hooked me up by phone with Pat.She mentioned ,they did take it once, up to Lebanon for a nostalgia race…probably Cap Area rods.The Paint is still that pale yellow with some primer spots.and few damaged spots…BUT Thats All going to be fixed,as I have offered to Re-Hand Letter the car to its original way I did back then! AND Bring it Up to the 5th Annual Dover Drags. It Runs and real good too …Might even see it Entered in our Dover eliminators! No problem being in the Time Warp parade and on display. Plan is to Repaint the car at Yenos and I’ll arrive early to do the restoration graphics.Brian took a bunch of shots of it today…sending to me to post..Oh..look close in this photo…Pied Piper in the background.

    Hey Bobby,thank you so much for sharing! I’m very happy to hear and see it’s still ‘alive’! Not all that bad to restore it either! 😮 😀 😉

    It’s been a few years now since last heard about “Yellow Fever”. Has anyone heard anything recently?
