Bob only had one factory LO23. The original owner was John Hooper. Dean Tait had the car after Lambeck. My opinion is that the LO23 car that was owned by John Rivers was later rebodied, this is the car that was owned by Frazer Dante-Craig Jackson- and the last I knew was in Florida painted black. The car had John Rivers and the others on title work and a lot of original parts but sadly in my opinion was rebodied Fred E

So what about the statement from Dean Tait that his car was a "Dick Landy" car?

Thanks in advance

I purchased it in about 1977. Drag raced it and street raced it. Had a lot of fun with it but I was always paranoid about street driving it mainly if someone leaned on one of the doors. I removed the hemi when I purchased it and swapped in the one from my hemi roadrunner. Left on the inlines and drove it around and even drove it back and forth to work. There's been a LOT of stories on this car and believe me everyone had to get there share of $$$. That not what I owned/sold it for. It's a shame how everyone knows better than me. This whole thing really irritate me. I guess I'll just stop now. Thanks for your interest.
