Anybody know Tony Perera?
« on: November 23, 2018, 01:43:18 PM »
Tony is a former owner of my Nightmist Blue '67 GT500 having owned it in the 80's and possibly longer, maybe in the 70's as well.

I was hoping to reach out to him to see if he might have any other history on the car.

Michael,

Where was he located geographically?  It might help to narrow down your search.

Good luck!

Car is #875 and originally sold in Watsonville Ca. I believe the car stayed in the Bay Area for first 20 +/- years.

Any history from that early part of it's life would be greatly appreciated.   8)

I think San Jose. I did a search and found many hits for his name in that general area. There seems to be more than one man with that name.

BTW, are you laying on a bag of ice?  ;)
