The Lotus 61 was my first race car.  Attended my first drivers school at Lime Rock, but not completed
because of a timing chain failure in the second session.  The photo above is a event at
Bridgehamton, Long Island.  This was run by a club called EMRA.  My first race.  Those familiar with
the track will notice I'm going the wrong way.  I told you it was my first race, actually the club would go
the opposite direction on occasion,  which kind of made it like a track you have never seen before.
Drivers school Summit Point, WV
Used the Lotus 61 for drivers schools and to obtain my National license.  The car was painted in this color and I didn't do any
modification.  No accidents and the only DNF was at the drivers school.  
This year(2008) I received a call from a gentleman in Tennessee.  He had purchased my old Lotus from the man I sold it to in
1983.  He's presently restoring it to original condition...cool.
Lotus 61 ad in Autoweek.  
June 4, 1979
The car came with a trailer, 2
piece single layer driving suit,
underwater, shoes, gloves
and a spare chassis.  The
helmet I already had.
When I got the car I painted it Black and Gold, I liked the Lotus F1 colors.  But
the color was to hard to keep clean, so I repainted it Red and White.  
Race cars I owned and drove.

In the beginning of 1981, purchased a Zink Z10B FF and raced it into 1985. Best finish in this car was a 6th, in a Pro FF race.  
This car should have been called the Zink Z10"D" for "dog".  Just could really never make this car work.  The B was replaced with
the Zink Z10C. A much faster car, and it was just a modified Z10A.  Sold it to someone in NY and never heard or saw it again.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Took a couple of years off.  By 1988 I had to get back into the seat.  Was done with FF and I saw
this Zink Z14 water cooled SV for sale.  Was a display at an auto parts store and only $2500. The
engine needed work but the car was complete.  Worked on the engine and painted the car red and
black. Brought it up to Lime Rock for a couple of test days.  Blew the engine and that was it for the
Zink.  Sold it to someone in MA. and he converted to a air cooled SV to run in SCCA FC.
I raced against this car in the years to come.  But that's another story.
Zink Z14 Water Cooled Super Vee
Lola T324 air cooled Super Vee 1988-1994
After the water cooled SV.  I knew I needed another car.  Scanning through Autoweek I found a Lola
T324 for sale in Michigan.  Called the owner and he said it was sold but his brother also had a Lola
T324 and it was for sale.  Called the owner on Friday, left NJ Saturday evening and arrived at noon
on Sunday.  Loaded the truck, had dinner with the family and left Michigan 6pm.  Got back to NJ
around 10am.  Went over the car, and left for Lime Rock the following Friday.  One very busy week.
I bought a chassis dyno for $250. it
needed work and I was able to repair
it.  I would chain the car down
because it was so light the tires would
loose traction at higher speeds.  
Sitting in the car wide open in four
gear with a cement block wall 30 ft
away would scare the hell out of me.

I purchased a Lola T192 F5000 car from Chuck Haines in St. Louis, MO in March 2007.  But the car wasn't available for pickup
until June 2007.  I had hoped to get to the Reunion races in 2008 but fell real short.  So I have my eye on 2009. I probably
have more than 1000 hours in it and hoping for a small piece of the stimulus package, but haven't heard back yet.

Car was completed in spring of 2010 with over 2000 hours of work.
