What's the latest ? Just curious to see if the owner found anything else out. Great potential story line -

Just to make things even more confusing this is a pic of a 302 emblem'd car in the Austin TX area at Little River Dragway around the 1977 timeframe (at least that is what I am told)..  Could this be the Don Lee car pictured above or is the date wrong that I was given and all three are the same car or could there actually be 3 different cars..??..  The plot thickens..

looks like the same car. Who sent that to you or where did you find it?

Looks can be deceiving though..  I see some differences but then again they are things that could have been changed.

BTW the date was confirmed that the pic was taken in 1977..

Reckon the TXDOT could back trace the old tag (shown in the first series) ? Be interesting to see if they could match a VIN up from old records with the tag - bet they could.

Keep on 'vestigating -
