True. Quite a few people knew about the car. Most people over the years tried to low ball him, or questioned him about it being real. Interesting bit of info was that when he bought it, he just thought it was a 69 Camaro. Wasn't until later he found out what he had. Troy and his family are very nice folks, and Doug treated them very fairly on the deal. Very cool to see another one coming out of hibernation.

Thanks everyone...sorry for coming to the party so late tonight....I was traveling all over the state today for work...duty calls I guess. First of all I want to say that I have a special group of friends that went above and beyond to help me with this car. If it wasn’t for them this special car would not have surfaced as well as the history would have been lost. The car resided in Indiana, Iowa and Illinois. A huge thank you to my Iowa family Deuce Heaven (Ken and Joe Shoenthaler) for providing me with the owners information....they had known about the car for years (25 or more). Joe and Ken met me at the owners home about 3 weeks ago...It was a small world because Troy (the owner) and Ken knew all the same people. They only live 30 minutes apart. Thank you Ken and Joe. By the way ...the fried chicken dinner with...Shawn, Joe and Ken was outstanding. I promised Troy the owner that I would share all information that we find...and we have done just that. Troy is a true gentleman. After loading up the car I headed back east to Ohio for my 7 hour drive (all alone) ...so I called a good friend Matt Lamer and provided him with a few previous owners names...and Matt took it from there...he has found out everything as we know it today including the original owner and race history...Matt I owe you a big bottle of Captain Morgan’s in Chicago in 2 weeks. Thank you ...you are truly gifted with knowledge and the ability to find information. We only have 2 weeks until Chicago so we have been focused on finishing up some small details on the 67 Yenko with Frank Arone. The group that has went above and beyond deserve ALL the credit....Frank Arone, Matt Lamer, Matt Barczak, Dave McGaffee, Joe and Ken Schoenthaler, Tom Scholtz, John Weaver, my girlfriend Amy and her son Lane along with my son Austin....you folks made all of this possible.
