Okay ,  this is a really easy one so no cheating ( internet searches ) !  Also a bonus question .

What company was founded by Oscar Koveleski in 1958 ?

 

He was also one of the foundering members of what racing organization in 1970 ?

Oscar owned Auto World, of course.  He also founded the Polish Racing Driver's Association, which was for: 1) Polish racing drivers; 2) non Polish racing drivers; 3) Polish non racing drivers; and 4) non Polish non racing drivers.  A very exclusive club,  the PRDA

Very good explanation of the PRDA !  It was really formed just so they could have some fun but it still has a very large membership and meets at racing events year round .    Here's some fun info   www.prdaracing.com

I'm glad we all know who Oscar K . is !

 

You're up Vincent !

Hint time!  Unfortunately, you can find the names of the lady and her husband on the International Model Car Builder's Museum "in Memoriam" list.

Close enough, Tom.  Cassie and Randy Vandraiss were both the nicest people around.  When Cassie passed away, a group of us from the NNL Western Nationals committee built an AMT Cord model as a group project, and presented it to Randy on behalf of the Museum at the awards brunch.  Randy had no idea what was up, and there were a number of moist eyes in the room (mine included).  The model and plaque are still on dispaly at the museum. The one solace when Randy passed was that now he and Cassie were together again forever.

The real car's Slant Six came from Revell so the car was called XR6 for Ex-Revell 6.

Really? I knew the 6 was for the 6 cyl. mill, but I always thought the X came from Tex. Tex R 6 would have sounded pretty weird.
