Raced with Arlen in Nostalgia Super/Stock. Great guy. but don't let him sneak up behind you and give you a bear hug.

Remember as a kid in Akron going to Arlen's shop.  "Greg of Akron" painted Arlen's, Bobby Yowell's Pro Stocker & many others in the adjacent paint shop.

what a classic that was. He was a real artist.

Arlen,

I hear Reed is looking for the 72 Cuda I once had that previously was yours. I believe it was originally your 70 Pro Stock car....is that correct? The Cuda worked well for me and I did make a few changes such as a back-half on the chassis, full new aluminum, etc. I hope Reed finds the car.....I would love to see it back to it's former glory!!
