Past Crosley of the Month Winners - Page 10

Orlando's Crosley participated in the Pioneer Days Show on Nov.6, 2004. ( Fall Fun Fest ) Orlando Nieves for many years was our member in Puerto Rico, he moved to Florida a few years back and is enjoying the the car show circuit there now. 

His 47 wagon is a real eye catcher.  Orlando says "The radio is from a 1973 VW (Hitachi transistorized) with 6-12 volts and neg-pos switches.  Works perfectly and draws very little current from the battery. I adapted it to the dash board."

Crosley Powered Lotus H Modified.  These were posted on our original Yahoo Web board.  When Yahoo lost the club site I had saved the pictures but not all the text. The fellow that posted the pictures was looking for this car.

His Father was involved as the builder or driver or both. The only thing I have to identify the pictures were the labels and those were the name Johnny and Burt.  Any body recognize the pictures or car?  I believe they were taken in the 60s.
