The majority of the work was completed by Road-N-Race in West Palm Beach in 2007. The driver competed in only three SCCA events thru 2008, and two more with POC.before a heart attack in 2009 After a successful recovery he set his sites on the 2010 season, but alas...Passing the physical became too much of challenge.
I purchased the car spring of 2011, and began improving the car for my use. The suspension work was extensive, using whatever parts Jerry Woods suggested. See list for details...Also lightened it up with fiberglass doors, fenders, hood, and glass. The engine was already built to 2.3, so we just needed to replace the old Zenith carbs with PMO's. Completed all work by Spring of 2012, including precision corner weighting, alignment, and chassis set up. I competed in several autocross's thru 2016, continuing to set it up for the 2016 Hill Climb season, when health issues became the new focus for me as well... We did manage an Autocross in 2017, before prepping it for storage.
