Hey Fred interesting post. Don't remember giving copy of that BOS to John. It was for RHD GTA 752507.

All more or less true. Said entered in 11 Bulova Series races at Mosport still as #25 1975 and 76. Running as CS with 1300 GTAj engine in wide body. So far I have found only a few entries.

The post Trans Am record was not signicant. I was told that the engine kept breaking timing chains. Who has heard of that? When rebuilding the head I found a tight cam bearing and bent valves. Guess story was true.

I chose to honour her total TA record so restored her to the yellow1972 BOBCOR livery. She now in her 1970 red and white livery all as #25.

Ciao

I sold the #25 GTA in 2014 to an Alfisti and vintage racer in Michigan.

John just recently sold his GTA Stradale to an east coast Alfisti.
