The beautifully restored car was at the OCA Gettysburg show. Unfortunately, rain prevented the racing venue from happening. Hopefully, he will bring it to Wichita this year for the race on Thursday June 27.

That's what the F85s (and maybe C/Ss) got, I'm pretty sure.

That is pretty cool for Tweed. He did a heck of a job restoring that car. It looked great at MCACN. Canít say I was a fan of how they filmed the closeups on his boards and the image is constantly flickering.

Better not tell him that! We celebrated his 80th birthday in January! He still lives in Texas and is retired from racing.

Rocket hood emblem is correct for F85!
