Rick & His Yenko at Americarna LIVE Car Show
« on: December 01, 2013, 01:23:54 AM »
I met Rick at the show today and saw his beautiful Yenko.
Steve, Rick does have his CRG shirt on, but it was still about 35 degrees with a stiff wind at 10 am this morning, so it is about his third layer at that point.
Anyway, I promised I'd post some pics...

And I saw something I'd never seen before... The bikes are his Huffy Camaros.  You can't read it in the pics, but it does say "Camaro" on them...
Rick says they are low mileage, unrestored survivors!  ;D

Funny you ask, Gary!  We told him he needed a chrome bike rack...  ;)

Steve, LOL!!!  ;D  ;D  ;D How about matching CRG toboggans and mittens?

I love Olympic Gold and white on the Yenkos, if it (gold white) were available without having to get the white Vtop it would look great on a Z or L78 as well!

 No this is not Kevin's old gold car....it was sold in Jan 2011 at Russo & Steele. This car was running in F A S T class when I traded for it in '09. It's a black plate car with all original sheetmetal.Only 4 of the gold Yenkos exist far as I know..2 with white stripes 2 with black.Kevin had one of each. I love the olympic gold and it's the original color too! Thanks

If you look closer you'll see the rad support has the ac cond mounting rubbers still there plus holes in the top were the seal goes.It started out with a sb auto on column and ac. Terry Pennigton who's involved with FAST class racing cloned the car back in 90s.It was sold to Don Werner who had Terry build to spec a racecar with a ZL1 engine,special 400 turbo and several other racing goodies! Don went racing 5 times and quit. I traded him a 1972 Vega for it. Then I sold the engine,trans,rear ect parts and put back the 69 512 with a 69 M22 and Moser rear.It has no heater or radio but with the comp ZL-1 cam I've got the best music ever! Get's around 10 mpg unless you open up the 800 holley.....The best thing is most people think it's a real Yenko but I tell them it's more fun to own and I saved 250k.....
