    A quick question for the north east guys. I noticed a lot of cars with 3 digit numbers. I bet this was a hand full for the scorers as these cars were very fast. Can anybody tell me was it a fad?? just owner preference?? Sponsors?? Or maybe that the 3 digit numbers had a flow that made the paints jobs look even better to the eye.. Any answer would be well recieved.. Thank You.. Bobby..

    k9racer, my guess is that some of the 3-digit numbers came about because many tracks wouldn't allow duplicate numbers, so the owners would choose a unique number they could run anywhere, with little chance they would have to change their number. BTW, the 3-digit number isn't exclusive to the Northeast cars. I can remember when a couple guys from down your way ran 3-digit numbers: #312 Bobby Allison and #F97 Red Farmer.

    K9,

    There were a lot of the 3-digit numbers at the "Park", the 123 & 124 "Dodge Boys" cars immediately come to mind.

    Speaking of different numbering in the northeast, don't forget the %, the "cent", the $, the "crown 7", the U-2 (Universal Salvage sponsorship), M-6, PT-73, and the CraZ8 just to name a few.

    Those were the days!!!

    The Czepiel #888 driven by Rene Charland, Danny Galullo et al.was numbered after the address of the Czepiel (Amoco?) station on #888 Riverdale Rd. in West Springfield Mass. Anybody know if it's still there?

    The Amoco station has been gone for many many years, I think there is a Verizon store on the property now.
