Thanks for posting that link up! Lots of both local and non-local notable drivers.

Even one picture that had Bob Steven's in the #7 510 in there.

That was a trip to the past!

Lots of great pics! Love all the period wheels. Libres make everything look better (MGs, Mazdas, Pintos, even a 2002). That might be the only F-10 I've ever seen on a racetrack. Was that Lee "Mother" Mueller in the Huffaker TR8? Also some great shots of the Lauren St. Lawrence VIPs Z. Not to mention a sh#t-ton of 510 racers! Good stuff.

Try posting up a photo of the car, it may help.
There are some old timers here on the site, but a lot more that came up after Westwood, so photos would really assist in looking for a car.

Yes, pics would help, I was still shooting a lot of film in that time period and spent a lot of time at Westwood with the Specialty Engineering group.

hmmm does dropbox not work to load images?

i put the img tags at both ends and they arent showing but when i put in a browser they do - i used the image tab that inserted the 2 tabs and then inserted the text below between them
"[img the text below is here [/img" i had to delete the other bracket as it wouldnt display the text then
i figured it out the dropbox link automatically ends in dl=0 and it needs to be dl=1 to display automatically

Did those cars used to sit in a backyard over off Georgia St, near Renfrew?
