I think the patina on those REAL "mags" makes them even cooler. I love those rims. If anybody knows where I can find a set, let me know!

Here's one for you - Herb Sexton IHRA record holder 1972 or 73.
Anyone know anything about this car or have photos?
Thanks

I found an old post mentioning the Hooper car became a Bob Lambeck car.


Quote:
Bob only had one factory LO23. The original owner was John Hooper. Dean Tait had the car after Lambeck.


I have also found a post that said Hooper bought it "FROM" Lambeck.


Lots of "facts and rumors to sort out.

Looking for any info on a Dart called "Night Moves". Maybe owned/driven by Kenny Nichols.

A buddy of mine is still doing gold leaf and exotic paint in Illinois. Greg did out Mr. Norms cars, they are awesome...
