I bought a retro Can-Am car with Van Peenan etched on the bottom.

Any info or details on this person?

Can you post a pic of the chassis bottom?

If it really says "Van Peenen," it's from a current top Retro chassis builder from your neck of the woods, Greg Van Peenen.

Don't tell him I said so, but he's a curmudgeonly old fart... just like me and a lot of others here. LOL...

And a hell of a chassis builder, but don't tell him I said that either!
