I bought my 1967 Stinger YS-120 in 1974 from another member of 
Chicagoland Corvair Enthusiasts. When I bought it, I called Yenko 
Sportcars to see what information I could get about the car.

A very nice woman answered the phone. When I told her I bought a 
Stinger, she was almost as excited as I was. About a week later, I 
received a packet from Yenko with a couple of patches, a couple Yenko 
badges which appear on the Yenko Camaros, a Stinger sales brochure, and 
a couple of Yenko Stinger decals. She identified herself on the phone as 
Donna Mae.

It wasn't until a couple of years later that I learned who Donna Mae was 
and the whole 'Think Pink' thing.
