     Richie worked for George back then and I don't actually know when he "officially" became the owner, but George bought it from Foulger along with a "normal" street version. George said he thought my car was the "demo car" but I really have no proof except it wasn't titled until '69. I may have located the original owner but that's another thread.

I was racing in Stock Eliminator last weekend at the Fram Autolite Nationals in Sonoma California, there  were 10 cars in C/SA, and Ritchie made it to the final round of class eliminations, only to redlight to Bernie Cunninghams Firebird. But the 10.51ET that Ritchie ran on that pass was the quickest pass in C/SA at Sonoma. Pretty impressive, considering the heat & headwind we faced most of the weekend. As usual, Pauleys cars was wheelstanding big time.
