    Default 67 GS400 Race car "Animal Eater"

    I would like to find the present owner of my 1967 GS400, which was a race car from the early 70's thru the early 80's raced mostly at National Speedway in Long Island, NY. From what I understand the car is located on Long Island, NY and is a street car. I believe it has had 2 or 3 owners since I sold the car in the early 80's. Any information would help.

    After 5 years of searching I have found the Animal Eater and hope to get the car back! The car has some of the original parts like wheels, headers national speedway win stickers. I will post updates as time goes on.

    The name came from the original Kenne-Bell drawing of a Wildcat that was on his catalog and I had it painted (back then there was no vinyl lettering everything was hand painted) that figure biting the tale of a Tiger = Animal Eater!!!

    I would email them to myself on my computer. It seems easier that way for me. Then you can save the file to your computer and then attach it. You can also load them from your phone but it seems to be more of a hassle. You would have to go through the website on the phone and load them. Just figure out where the file is stored on the phone and pull it from there. Goood Luck and awesome story.

    Yes it is on Long Island looks to be in good shape. The car was on a lift in a garage with years of stuff and a dead car under it. I hope to see the car on the ground in a couple of weeks. I think the car has been stored inside most of the years since I sold it. I think this is the 4th owner since I sold it . It has been a street car and this owner raced it about three years ago.

    Thanks to all the responses I am still trying to get the GS back the owner has been unable to clear out his garage and get the car off the lift. As soon as I have more info I will let everybody interested know.
