My understanding is that the Marshall Robbins car was a third "back-up" car that was not completed by Jim Hall. Robbins bought it and completed it to run the '71 season. Warren Agor got that car from Robbins to run the 1972 and later Trans-Ams. I don't know whose car Mo Carter got but I suspect it was the Ed Leslie car. Mark Waco got the other Jim Hall team car (descibed as ex-Hall in the 1971 Donnybrooke T/A article in Competition Press & Autoweek) and Waco ran it as car #1. I think Sid Rust must have gotten his car from Mark Waco.

On the Historic Trans-Am website, the Marshall Robbins/Warren Agor car is described as the third Chaparral team car. Apparently the car was completed but was "severely damaged" during testing at Laguna Seca. That particular chassis did not compete in an actual Trans-Am race during the 1970 season, according to the HTA write-up.

jon, thanks for that info on the chaparral camaros. I had seen that photo of waco doing some forest clearing at elkhart 1971, but didn't twig to it being the one of the hall cars.

You're welcome, Mike. I guess I assumed you would have already known that.
