This is the first one I've ever seen in person. Wasn't Don Aronow somehow connected to these?

Their website has a decent writeup on the history. The new banana's are really nice. Great fit and finish with classic lines.

That's cool. I didn't know they still made them. So the one I saw was an original 24 made from the old Cig 24 molds :) . I think he said it was a 1976 but not sure. It had a 454 but wasn't the original engine.

They're tough little boats. I had one years back that had twin blown small blocks with TRS drives. It behaved like a much larger boat.
