    Do you have any of the history on the car??? Would be curious to know who owned it, what it raced in, and who some of the drivers' where??? A very nice restoration!!! Thanks for taking the time to preserve a bit of history and share it with us, Jorgen!!!!!

    Yes it has a long history, it has been a race car since 1966. The previous owner was Steve George. This is an extremely competitive car that consistantly places on the podium. It has a 327 ci @ 558 hp along with the help of the famed 60's GM Corvette Race Team mgr Walley Peat helping on set up .

    From back in the day




    This is me right before the recent restoration

    I had Dave Kindig of Kindigit http://www.kindigit.com/ do the new body flares and paint - I really think this kid is the new up and coming star. He has done some unreal projects.
    I looked at all of the old photos of my car to see the previous color schemes and body mods and went from there, all while keeping the car currently vintage race legal.

    How far back did you trace this car? If it might have spent it's early years in the Detroit area I have knowledge of it. Looks a lot like one that a friend built and raced back then. I know he would like to hear about it. Jack

    Class all the way, Jorgen! Sure stirs a lot of fond memories seeing that beautiful '65!

    Thanks for sharing with us.
