…The CHARIOTS, Bronx, New York
Response to Bobby S. post of the photo with club member wearing CHARIOTS AUTO CLUB jacket. The club was located in the Bronx in the shadow of the Throgs Neck Bridge. I was a member of the club from about 1966 to 1973 and a huge Dover fan starting in 1962 when I was 13. I wish I knew who is wearing the jacket in the photo. Any Chariots out there?
Thanks Scott for the Chariots email. Dennis is an old friend I have not seen in 30+ (!!) years. I will drop him an email.
If he runs the Plain Vanilla T-bucket…He ran our Drags at Island and is featured on our New Nostalgia Drags Poster.
that is he,,
Dennis with the Plain Vanilla altered,
talking to Dennis at the Jan NETO
meeting I sent Pat Creamer
Dennis’s contact info,
he got in touch with
Dennis they have not
talked to each other for about 25+ yrs.
Pat was also Chariot`s member.
I’m glad to have gotten you guys in touch with Dennis. Above is the photo that he showed me of he and the Chariots from 1962.
Below is Dennis at Bakerfield’s March Meet with the Pacers Tribute AA/FA. I am usually with him at the NETO meets.
That picture is I believe Mr. Bobby Delsoles MG which he still owns today.
I must have been asleep at the mouse, I never moved the picture over to see the car. If Anthony didn’t mention it I would have never looked. I’m amazed how many MG’s where out there with non MG motors in them. When I went to the races with mine the only other one I say was the US Mule.
Let me sort this out …Dennis runs the Plain Vanilla Altered with NETO and “Pacer” goes with him to Neto Meets -Right…He was at our Nostalgia Drags…were you? Also this Other MG…Bobby’s…He still has It but does he run it ?or show it ?AND did it run at Dover ?
Here it is today.
His son is signed up on here I wish he would jump in and could give you more info.

Yes Dino, you are correct.
Dennis Quitoni runs the Plain Vanilla A/Altered and is a member of NETO. He also is formerly the driver of the KOOKS Custom Headers AA/FA. He lives down the street from us.
My father, George, is George Snizek, the original owner and original driver of The Snizek & Dodge Racing Team aka The Pacers’ Tasmanian Devil
and both Pacers Auto-CARS Magazine Racing Team AA/FD’s. He and myself have been to most of the meets with Dennis this past year, including the Nostalgia Drags.
Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about The Chariots other than what Dennis told me. I can definitely tell you that he was happy to hear about this forum and looks forward to being in touch with his old friends.
