Steve wrote me
In 1979 The Denver Post
newspaper did a 1//2 page feature about the shop. I ran home
to get the 64 Fitch Sprint Spyder convert I owned for so
many years and they posed me with it. My shop partner was
out of town racing the Corvair powered midget. Great free
advertising huh!!

Several years ago Dave Newell sent me an ebay link to a place
selling black and white copies of the pic. A customer
bought one and gave it to me. I framed it along with a
'thank you' note to him and his family. His dad was bringing
him to the shop back then, he was barely of driving age. He
still has his Corvair, 1965 Red Corsa Convert. All fixed
up again and he uses it in club events/nice weather driving.

Steve, was the pic of your Sprint this car? Did it pass from your owner ship to BJ Smith and then sold off from his estate...

I had lost track of the this car for about a decade after it was sold by the Smith family and have just heard of it surfacing again...

Yes that is/was my car and your history is correct. I have Utube of the car at Bullet Motorsports Inc from several years ago and haven't seen the car since. It is Goldwood yellow/blk int and power top. Factory wood wheel plus stone guard/emblems. Kleenex dispenser under dash and handmade shift boot to cover quickshift. Boot was made of vinyl and laced at the back, the pattern/idea came from MGMitten sports car accessory advertiser in 50s-60s. Last was I carried spare tire facing upwards in engine bay with spinner in place and all four holes in wheel filled with chrome lug nuts. One long stud came from spare tire backet to hold wheel/tire in place. Oh, forgot I had bowl vent tube on YH carb too.

If you find recent interest in it send me a PM with details please. I had lots of good drives including 1977 convention in Minn where I had the privilege of parking beside the late Tom Severson in his silver 64 spyder convert/fitch sprint convert; the only two Sprints in the concourse. Did several of the mini-conventions in Phoenix with the car too plus to Calif several times.

I could never bring myself to have the stripes painted because of overlap into rain gutters. Barney used adhesive tape.

When I had my 64 sprint convert. when I restored it I painted the stripes on, The car is now owned by Jeff Kent wish I still had it but autocross got me hooked. Jeff has taken good care of it, I restored it in 1985 and it is still a Gold award car.
