Thanks, I would've never known. I first read about him driving an Alfa in TA under 2 liters class, seemingly winning every other race. There's a picture somewhere of him carrying the left front through the esses at Mid-Ohio but leading a 510 here will do:

(a) Me too.

(b) Wait a minute! I thought only Porsches hadda do that. And even then, not thru right handers....

'Learned about anti-rollbars (no, not sway bars) 'cause of Carreras going thru the west horseshoe at Daytona wit' their right fronts 6-8 inches in the air. Bought some Addco "Swaybars", some Sears heavy duty shocks, and coil over helper springs front and rear which turned my '74 Gremlin into a sleeper sportscar. If only that massive hunk of iron 258 had at least a 4 speed (let alone 5...) tranny behind it instead of the three....'still a helluva lot o' fun tho'

(I know, I know, wrong forum...should pm'd ya....)
