1 time when I was driving the Harrell 35 after a hard crash at Flemington I spent a few days at Troyers fixing the car . At the end of the first day ,I asked about getting a cab to take me to the motel. Maynard said "just take my beater truck" and keep it until you are ready to go home. Well, Maynard's beater was a beautiful 56 Ford F-100 street rod with a 351. When I told him I wasn't going to take that truck and park it at a motel parking lot he said "don't worry about it. It's just my beater truck"
Another time he was at the Holiday Inn in Staten Island on business and he called me. We spent the night drinking beer until 4:00 in the morning, talking racing and race cars. What a great night
