Ok Model Car Journal I did not look at. Thanks. I knew you were pretty dominant at the time. To be walled through no fault of your own during the biggest race of the year must have had you seeing red.

 

Thanks for the info. It's sure nice to be able to get such quick info on an event that happened forty-eight years ago!

A lot up for grabs, Hometown crowd in Atlanta, Conspiracy theories abound, they would not give me time to fix my car. They did not want me to win. I was crushed. They were happy. end of story

Howie, your car and story could live on if a "tribute" to your sports car were built here on Slotblog....if that was OK with you. I've always wanted to build, drive and display a tribute to your car. Maybe one of our resident artists would paint the body such that it depicts that particular race?

Howie, I should probably start a new dedicated thread. Do you have a any ideas for a title............and...........do you think I should put it into "Pro Racing Cars & Replicas" instead of my " The DC-65X Diaries" sub-forum? I would like your car and story to get as much exposure as possible.

Maybe a tribute sports car body as if Noose had painted him one for the race. :D

End of the inline era, yes, but it was resurrected with retro.  Howie, Tony, Noose, M. Steube, PdL, Warmack all still have what it takes.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I was at one of the SANO IRRA® events where Howie waxed the field in F1 - zero deslots, wire to wire  :shok:  :)

Of course, Champion territory. I love it "The Race that was Rigged" . . .
