Members of the Chrysler Employees Motorsports Association (CEMA) gave legendary Road Runner creator Jack Smith an honorary membership in the organization at last week’s large CEMA show.

Jack Smith was picked up by the Marv and Kurt Raguse in their orange 1969 Road Runner and dropped off at the front steps to the Walter P. Chrysler Museum. Jack was not told ahead of time he was going to receiving something. He was both surprised and thankful for the honor, alway gracious and giving of his time and stories.

A special thanks to Marc Milosevich for doing an outstanding job on the plaque we asked for this special occasion.
