Bob, that orange Dodge was one of my all time favorite cars. They replaced it with a '68 Dart, which actually ended up racing at Woodhull on the dirt a couple of years later. Sparling Northside Esso was the hot spot for race cars, Loren Oakden ran a #77 '61 Chevy bubbletop as a teammate to Al, and I remember a white and orange #4Q '65 Chevelle that maybe Fred Quail ran. I believe there was a Formula Vee in the shop on occasion too. When J&J Auto Parts was still in business on Market Street, you could tell them you wanted a gallon of SNERT orange and they knew exactly what you wanted.
