|06/27/06||Andy Horne||IN 1974 I WENT TO JOHN IN THE PITS AND ASKED HIM FOR HIS AUTOGRAGH. HE
GLADLY GAVE IT TO ME. I TOLD HIM, NEXT TO MY DAD, HE WAS MY FAVORITE DRIVER. HE TOOK OFF
THE JOHN TRAUGER #32 BLUE AND GOLD JACKET HE WAS WEARING AND GAVE IT TO ME. HE WAS THE
NICEST GUY I EVER MET.
THE LAST I HEARD HE WAS DRIVING A TRUCK OVER THE ROAD. NOTICE THE MACK BULLDOG ON THE ROOF OF THE CAR.

His coupe and this Gremlin really stood out with the large #32 on the side. Can't remember what car it was, but I think John may have picked up a ride in someone elses car for a while.|

John also rented a bay in the same building where he kept his modified, the Diamond T. It was a John Burnett car if I remember correctly. John was a real nice guy and gave me many tips on painting the collector cars I was restoring at that time.|
