Trillo Bros.

The Trillo Bros. Turns out this is the ex-Mike Sullivan Fiat, if you were wondering where that car went...
The Trillo's ran it with a Big Block Chevy, Jim Trillo drove, and they turned at best, a 7.28 at around 200...

Greg Bellemuer

This crazy Bellemeur guy...got lots of pictures, little info. He was from Monrovia, CA,
and ran a Fiat before going to the T bucket. There's a great shot of him mowing down the Xmas
tree at the Winternationals with the Fiat...have to find that.

alone on Page 2 of the Nanook Pages, by Tom West.
