As mentioned in another topic about an old (Sorry Bob ! LOL !) race hand.
Another car he had.

Mustang with lettering on it is from 73 when Bruce and I won the track championship at Georgetown(burnout shot).The pic where the car has a shaker on it is at Cayuga where we ran it in SS/G for the day.The great Don Henderson lent us the set up.It was either late 73 or early 74,because the Molson Golden Wheels Champion 1973 is painted on the side of the roof.Pit shot is at Grand Nationals in San Air.
All the unlettered shots are in British Columbia where the current owner,Tom Woods lives.It was an R code car,but we ran it in SS/H non ram.Tom has chosen to leave it this way as this is the way it was raced.Although the shots were not very clear,I sent him close ups of the "Special Thanks to Barrie Poole" that was near the left tail lights, and the Molson lettering on the side of the roof.Thought he may want to put this stuff back on the car.

The first set of photos of the car unlettered wwere taken at Mission, the last set from the Eagle Motorplex near Cache Creek BC, about 4 hours NorthEast of Vancouver. I haven`t seen the blue coupe at either track in at least 10 or 12 years now.

Are the where abouts of this car known right now?

I know of one that I have been trying to get the VIN on. Its a R with an all fiberglass frontend.  Raced at some point in Canada from what can be told by the Molson Nationals stickers on it.  DSO was out of Hawaii. 

Going off of second hand knowledge (My brother)

I'm fairly sure this car didn't have any glass parts.
It was acid dipped though. I think. May be thinking of the 70 Cougar.....
I'll ask bro after he is back from his vacation.

As far as I know, the car is still in the Vancouver area.
