She told me that he hardly drove the two cars. Both the Ls6 and Biscayne were sold from east point Chevrolet in east point Georgia. When Anthony Owed the car my friend Jeff put a low mileage smog system back on the car. I think at the time it had around 25 miles on it. Jennings owned a trucking company. He drag raced a 55 Chevrolet and a 62 409. He passed away back in 89.
----Thanks for completing the picture, L72! You know, every time I have looked at a picture of your beauty I had a small spark of recognition. One of our buyer's at Classic Motors back then (Gomer) bought the LS6 car from Jennings. He told me about your car, but I had forgotten about it. Things come full circle, don't they.
----When I lived on the Cape I used to sell Tony Corvette parts. He was one of the most fastidious collectors I've ever known. I was delivering some stuff one time and he was in the back of his station with a brand new 75 or 76 Corvette up on the lift. he was taking it all apart to bring it up to his standards. The car only had about 10 or so miles and he was virtually restoring it.....Bill S

[QUOTE=Xplantdad;1567204]This guy?


----His given name was Lynn, but his sisters nicknamed him Gomer early on and it stuck. Way to many crazy, crazy stories about him (almost all true)! He unearthed so many of our greatest cars over the years. He had a photographic memory for valuable cars I think. Plus he worked out of Louisville KY which was and is very fast car oriented. Sadly, Gomer died way too early with multiple substance abuse problems. He truly was a one of a kind!....Bill S

I was just joking Bill, but you probably already knew that. Sorry to hear that he had substance abuse problems....
