Adding a little to my Chenowth history/story. This is an original photo and press release issued by BFG for Mikes Mint 400.

Unfortunately it was pulled from German Auto in Norwalk. After 50 years in that location, and the death of both owners last year the property has been sold. Still a possibility that their SACO line of products will continue through one of the sons. Spent a lot of time there over the years

I hope German Auto/Saco carries on.
German Auto will not carry on and has been closed for 2 years. SACO likely will. Lots of interest there

GA Commemorative 50 year t-shirt I got a week or so ago

Look familiar? Pops was able to get this from German Auto as they are clearing out the shop. It is in pretty damn good shape for having sat in the shop for the last 35+ years. He also picked up this clock my Mom made for the race team back in the 70's after a slight flat tire
