Just in case he doesn't come back to respond, if I recall right, it was around 1978-79. Raced it until 1985 or so. It was ET Bracket racing, which he hates. He was the fastest, but bracket racing really rewards the driver that has the best response time and stays at his dial-in without breaking out (don't go too fast), it's really a style that rewards skill more than pure speed. And, yet, even then, he still always won. He's really one of the best in the world, sort of a savant of air cooled racing: building and driving. Okay, maybe I'm partial. Wink

Where were you guys when I posted this video in my intro thread, along with some of Tony's car recently. About halfway down the thread are the vid links:

I know you posted before but I found it and decided to let the light shine on his birthday. I was curious about what happened to the car.

Someone from Belgium just sent me this from last weekend. The car was at a drag race there. They said they think it IS FOR SALE. I'm writing the owner right now.... bounce
