Bought this little car new in 1975, traded it in 1986 for a new Corvette and 20 years later, she finds herself back in my stable.

Two year restoration put her back in the condition I recall. Several Best of Show awards and First Place Gold with VCCA.

That front spoiler is a factory accessory part which is ultra-rare. It was a dealer installed item.

Very nice Ollie! Was it running when you took the pic, or is that a ghost?

Good eye Kenney,

Took the shot in Virginia - I need a good photo for the Best in Show award.

Sure enough, the vapor started in the exhaust as I started to take the photos. It was a rainey day to boot.... so I sorta' liked the effect.

The ghost of Cosworth past. Or is it the prince of darkness with the Bosch fuel injection? LOL
