Georges garage was on Queen Street in Northumberland. The building is still there. He used to hire neighborhood kids to take parts out of wrecked cars. He also work for the Pennsylvania Railroad at the Norry yard.

One of the neighborhood kids owned one of the first KARS 358 Sprint Cars and numbered it 72. He later rebuilt a vintage Midget and regularly attends EMMR events with it.

Here is a picture of Jeff Bingamans vintage Midget with old coupe drive Glenn Walter driving it.
