Spoke with Phil Henny at the Shelby Nastionals, Watkins Glen 2 weeks ago and purchased his "Al Bartz" book, only just started reading it but it was great to talk with Phil about Al Bartz, great stories from Phil.

Considered a engine guru down here in New Zealand this book is a must!! he built quite a few jet boat engines for river racing back in the 70's

I meet Pat many years ago by chance and have been friends since, im sure he still owns both Camaro's, i think he traded a 427 Cobra on the Penske 69 Camaro, he also has a Penske Lola Can Am car, SB Cobra and 66 Shelby vintage race car. Pat and his son Kiel race with RMVR and feature in "Victory Lane" from time to time.

Very nice guy Pat.

You guys are onto it, unbelievably by chance i spoke with Buzz Dyer at the Somona Historics last year, didn't realize he had owned his Javelin for so long, good on him!! said they won't let him race it in HTA because its dry sump, didn't mention anything about paint? offcourse hes good mates with Ron Grable that raced Bruce302's Pontiac in New Zealand back in the 70's!!

[Moved over here from the "Roy Woods Racing, California Trans-Am racers" thread]



Very cool pictures John, you mention "Bill Collins" who was he? did he own the 71 Javelin after Donahue finished racing it? also are all the TA Javelins that race, factory or independent accounted for?
