His name is Tony, one of the coolest COPO owners you'll ever meet, short of Mike that is probably parked next to him somewhere.
   I worked on that car, some tuning etc.. and drove it.  It may look a little worn around the edges but it runs and drives fantastic.   I have some old glossys of the car with my son riding along in it.  Good times. Some very funny stories in that car.

Cool.  8) I had never been to that show and thought it was great! A little worn yes but just awesome! I saw it had the dealer license plate frame from New Carlise.
 I saw the Black car next to it also. I wish I had talked with the owners.  Looks like they had a canopy set up behind the 2 cars but we were just trying to see as many cars as we could.
Great Show!

Thanks guys for the reply. Defenetly be at next years show!

Pumpkin Run.  Mike owns the other black COPO.  He's another very cool guy.  Owned it since early 70's as far as I can remember.  We were neighbors for close to 20 years.   Used to be a red COPO that hung with us as well, but haven't seen him in years.    Mikes buddy had a black COPO as well that used to run together in the 70's.  I had the opportunity to buy that car but passed on it after the shape I last saw it.  The fate of that car is a sad story.   Pumpkin Run is probably the best car show going in Cincinnati, weather is always iffy though.
