Desperately Seeking (7)

<<<<< Desperately Seeking! >>>>>

I'm currently just beginning my search for any of the Golden Nugget cars that were owned and raced by Ron Potter from Cleveland, Ohio. One was a Don Long chassis front motor dragster that was run in T/F in '70 and '71 (possibly two different cars). The other was a '72 Mustang AA/FC that he ran in '72 and later crashed in early '73 in Lakeland, Florida.

My interest stems from the fact that while only a 16 year old kid, Ron allowed me to crew with him during the summer of '72 on the F/C. I've been involved with drag racing ever since! Right now I'm in my third season with Mark Pawuk, working on his Pro Stock. I lost touch with Ron and his wife Renee about a year after his crash. Any information about Ron, Renee, the whereabouts of any of the cars, or their history would be appreciated very much!

Thank you,
Paul Lavoie

I'm trying to help my friend Brian Hatton locate his dad's old funny car, the "Boss Hoss." It was a 1965 Mustang coupe with an extended front end. It was painted yellow and gray and powered by a 427 SOHC. The car was campaigned by Paul Hatton and Paul Stefanski. The car may have gone to Flint, Michigan. Also looking for home movies and original photos of the Boss Hoss, Pete Gate's Gate Job Comets and Cougar and the 1969 long nose Mustangs of Wayne Gapp and Drake Viscome. You can E-mail me at gatejobcometsohc@bright.net Thank you.
