    Here's a pic I scanned from an old photo of Cotterman's:

    http://www.realautosport.com/pics/Kims510s.jpg

    Cotterman is wearing coveralls and about to take that baton to the knuckles of the bearded chap who looks ready to pour a can of peas into the carb. :7

    Look closely and you'll see Kim had his name on the back of his hat, languishing as it was on the navvie's side of the car when this pic was snapped ...

    From the ample evidence it appears Kim found a way to render the windscreen demisters moot at the same instant he massaged the roof into that unique shape ...

    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Well, it was a flashlight and not a baton, the can was full of tranny fluid that went som'ers into the carbalater somehow, but the id's on the driver and the reason for the vehicle lightening by way of glass removal are accurate...

    Thanks for posting this one, Mike.

    I do kinda wish I had the shot later on, with this thing in the parc ferme at POR, with training wheels on hubcaps on the rear wheels...

    Kim -- is this beastie one of the two you've got in the garage? H class is calling your name...still got Ms. Hall's phone number?

    Eric,

    You have got me looking through old photos & slides from
    71 Canadian Winter, 72-75 POR, more Marathon 400, etc. I
    don't have many, but I'll try to share what I have if I can
    get the slides scanned.


    This brings back alot of memories, and reminds me how much
    I have forgotten!

    If you need, I'll scan the slides. I have a fairly (nay, make that way too) expensive slide scanner that does a pretty good job with 35 mm.

    Send me a private email if you want me to do your scanning.

    Agreed
    The green 510 is Brian Rebney.
    Buffum's 911 is likely to be at 1976 NARA Marquette 1000. Zasada won the '75 POR with that car and sold it to Buffum. Note the Marquette 1000 plaque on the hood and if you can read the side of the car,the famous "Let's Boogie" side script would be there.
    Woodner ran the "new" 1978- 510 in blue trim . When Roddy ran it it was yellow.
    The Tom Tolles 122 is at a later rally. Note the WonderMuffler/Lancia ID package.As I remember Lancia/Wonder Muffler was David Ash's NARA /NARRA 1976/1977 sponsor. NARA didn't exist until the 1976 season. Lancia/Wonder Muffler was never an SCCA sponsor. NARRA then goes to the Montgomery Wards Auto Club as title sponsor for 1978.
    In your 1975 Marathon 400 photos, Blok's 510 would be very distintive. It appears to be as two-door car but the doors are too short. He used a 4-door body for stiffness and welded/filled in the rear doors. He also had the big flares fitted. The base color was white ,I didn't remember the trim colors. Nils Eriksen and I might be in your photos. I doubt it though - a black Fiat 124 spyder- way in the back of the pack. First car on the road was Hourihan/Shepard 142.

    Nope, this one was recycled into a liesure racing machine when I started getting weird with 99's. The two in my garage are a GT-4 Race car (with full cage and nice, but peaky engine and NO ELECTRICS) and a Rally Car (Richard Bunce's if anyone remembers the name) with the 1975 POR sticker still in the trunk....no cage 'tho..just a bar and stock seats, etc.) Theoretically both should run, but I have no empirical proof of that in the last 24 months since I took on this Damned Rally!

    In 1975, Wonder Muffler offered SCCA license holders a $50 voucher
    (lots of money in 1975...) towards an exhaust system for their rally car. The voucher could be taken to a Wonder Muffler dealer who would
    do the work and get reimbursed by Wonder Muffler.

    A Mom & Pop shop in Newton, IL spent many hours building a system for our SAAB 96 by copying our beat-up copy of the factory Group 2 system.
    They were fantastic people. They underestimated the difficulty of the
    job but refused to charge us for the extra time they spent. The system
    was bulletproof, took everything the tough U.P. Michigan roads could dish out at '75 POR, and lasted for years.

    Tom Tolles ran second to Zasada at POR in '75 in the white 2dr. 122 Volvo. Guy Light was third. Doris and I started 46th, worked our way up to 4th, 5 seconds behind Guy Light, when we DNF'ed on the
    next-to-the-last stage. If only... How many of us have "if only" stories?
