So I found this today up the road from my place.

It is a 1972 KPL610. It has been parked for a long time. Anyone know anything about it?
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

The "N" is missing, Noel Florack, he was a customer of Andy's and partner with Pete Robichaud in racing at Mission, if memory serves me well.
Now, I'm not sure the lineage of that car, see if someone else pipes up.

Good one Rob, you would be correct, one of us should have a photo and I bet they are on my VHS/DVD media.

The car has been listed on CL a number of times for a reasonable price given what's there. But it looks too modified to come back to a street car without some serious surgery. And as with many old race cars, registration is often lost in transition.

It would be a cool project, but as Peter always said and became his avatar; TMPNET (too many projects, not enough time.....)

It is not for sale. And my wife would kill me if another car appeared in our driveway.

I finally got my hands on the old GOLDRUSH posters. This was the two car timed solo I mentioned in my story. Thanks to Randy Hone for going through his old records.
