Speaking of the Bannerman AMX.  I have a photocopied proposal to build and run the car.  Its about a 12 page packet.



Would you be willing to scan and sell a copy or copies of the Bannerfman proposal, Adam?

Cool shot of an AMX racing a couple of Corvettes at Daytona International Speedway during a 1969 SCCA event.  Is this the runoffs?  I found the picture at Getty Images.  See a larger version of the picture here: http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/pair-of-chevrolet-corvettes-sandwich-an-amc-javelin-during-news-photo/132706783

It sure seems like the photo is from the ARRC event but that was in November and this photo says it is from September. Might be a mistake on their part.

I was thinking the same thing Jon.  They have been known to get some of their dates wrong.

Was there ever any follow up on whether or not the TEAM AMX does still exist or not?

No, I don't remember getting any follow up on that subject.

Hello All,
Been away for awhile. Regarding the TEAM AMX, about 3 or so years ago Mike Randall confirmed in a telephone interview that I had with him that at some point the car had been accidentally allowed to go to a wrecking yard where it was crushed. Mike did say that he's planned to create a replica of the car.

Regards,
Steve

Thanks for the reply Shadow Ahead, and talking with Randall himself about it. I hope they do make a replica of it. I'm making one myself. Hopefully some other pictures will surface at some point, especially of the dash/ interior and engine compartment.

This was at the vintage event, Mosport, Ontario, Canada, June 2017.

First time out for the car, it only did a few laps in one session. I have a couple of other shots of the car, pm me and I can send if interested.
