1968 research by R. Meek

June 2004: Doug Harley's research uncovered someone with more memories of this car -
"Eddie and I dated for awhile back in high school in New Jersey in the late 1960's, and the "Green Machine" was his pride and joy at the time.  I remember that car so vividly, parked in his father's driveway, took up the whole thing, almost!  That, and an ice cream truck he rigged up with a refrigerator unit to sell ice cream to the neighborhood kids.  He went to school at Villanova University, in the Naval ROTC program, and our association ended sometime around his sophomore year.  Anyway, I know he just loved that car!  I can't imagine what he might feel like reading it was scrapped!
