Well you guys know you Andy G. alright. The Chicago manufacturing came later. Andy and his brother Vince started out by making runs to So. Cal. and loading up with Speed parts and racing back to Chi. Town and unloading them to the speed parts hungry locals. That's how they got started.

Pick up a copy of "They call me Mr. 500". It's good reading. I read it in my teens and think I still have it somewhere.

Your correct.

Ronnie's- "I had a fifty-five Ford and a two dollar bill"
