LARRY GRANGER
A True Champion From Flathead Days


Portrait by McIver

     Larry Granger is nobody that I ever met. By the time I arrived in Milton to teach in 1968, he was pretty much disappearing from the racing scene. But, from the way I hear people speak of him, I know that he earned very high regard with almost everyone he came in contact with in those earlier days of flathead racing in northern Vermont and New Hampshire. I don't have q ton of stuff on him him now, but I am hoping that regulars to the site, along with my friend Cho Lee, will contribute some more Granger stuff in the next months of 2009.

Although Ken Squier had the car
restored as Pappy's, Larry
Granger was an important
driver in the car.

Larry drove the GT-1 for a while around 1968. I don't know if Joey LaQuerre [foreground] owned it then or not.
