1968 race pictures at Fremont
« on: May 04, 2018, 05:13:07 pm »
I connected with photographer Bob Wenzelburger this week, who had a couple images of my car which I'd never seen before - thought I'd share.  Both are at Fremont, CA in 1968.  I wish the starting line shot was sharper, but beggers can't be choosers eh?  Bob said he was stationed at Fort Ord at the time, and would come up with his buddies on weekends to watch the races.  Good times!

Bob also showed me some pictures he took at the recent FE shootout.  Chris, was that your Brittany Blue car launching hard?

I ran at the 2018 FE Race & Reunion. Whether my car was launching "hard" is open for debate.

Regardless, I had fun....

With the right wheels and a 28" tire on the back, Chris' car looks like a natural.
