I've been talking to Roman the last two nights about the Parkinson GTV. He feels that it is a Kwech car that was wrecked at Riverside, by Cannone?, and cut up. Does that name ring a bell with anyone? It is Not the #3 1971 car, which still exists, obviously.
There's lots to know about these Wetson/Kweck GTVs and I would be good to get it all together.
Here what I have heard or deduced from the print. I'm open to corrections.
1970-There was Kweck GTAs masquerading as GTVs toward the end of 1970
1971- there were 3 Orange Pepsi/Wetson GTV # 2, 3, 4
1972- Only recall 2 blue #3 and 4, and I don't know if they were the 1971 cars repainted, but I have heard they were.
I think their are 2 known today one in Michigan and one that I last heard of on the USA west coast. These reportedly carry Brass Tags 72BS04 and 72BS05.
Oskar Feldman reported to me in the mid 1980's that he had one at that time.
The west coast one is (edit: I thought) the Norman( Romero)/ Samson GTV, (edit: see Keith's post below)
Anthony Riminci pondered once on this BB if his father had cut up a Kwech GTV wreck once.
I have seen the Michigan Kwech team GTV as I sure you have. But don't know its provenance between kweck and current owner.
Picture shows this Michigan Orange #3 (Edit : Sam Cumming's GTV) at Amelia Island in 2008.
If I find a picture of the west coast GTV will post later. Edit: Found pic of the Shelly Zide #4 Blue Wetson GTV restored in 1972 livery.
Here's what is said about #4 on the B-Sedan/2.5 Challenge web site. "Shelly Zide (CA), 1971 Alfa Romeo. This is one of the two Kwech/Theodorocopulos Alfa factory cars originally raced in 1971 2.5 Challenge Trans Am series, then thoroughly reprepped with Pepsi sponsorship and logos for the 1972 2.5 Challenge as #4, which is its current appearance."
