[QUOTE=PatriYacht]Last I heard, Sonny was back in Michigan and had a classic car dealership called Showdown.[/QUOTE ...I'll be darned...That was the name he used back in the 70's at his boat sales shop in Wyandotte or Riverview, Michigan. He sold little Donzi's & Jetboats there. I think it was his dad's business, actually. They called it "Showdown Marine". Thanks, Ed

Question Re: Python boats? Anyone

Pete...Did Sonny start building Python 24's in Michigan & then later move to Georgia? Or, how did this progression evolve? I think he might have been a Carerra & a Cigarette dealer as well, back then, on west Jefferson Ave? Ed

I think Jim Clark was invloved with him in Mich, and moved the deal down south.
